A: Your question doesn't mention a patent number, but U.S. patents typically show "Attorney, Agent, or Firm" on the front page of each patent. Depending on how the attorney or firm fills out the issue fee paperwork, a U.S. patent might list only the firm name, or only the attorney, or both. Additionally, the attorney/firm that prepared and filed the patent application might not be the same attorney/firm who prosecuted the application and is named on the front page. You can look into the prosecution history of a U.S. patent on the Patent Application Information Retrieval (PAIR) link at www.uspto.gov to see if the attorney who filed and prosecuted the patent is the same as the one listed on the front page.
