Patent agents helped applicants file patent applications with the government agencies that would evaluate and grant them or not.

The role of patent agents differs by country. It does not appear to vary much by technological field. We have many examples of patent agents from certain countries, notably France, where the practice was to put the name of the patent agent on the patent document itself.

See Category:Patent agents for lists of identified patent agents, both persons, and company/agencies, grouped by country.

Patent examiners are an entirely different category of government officials who evaluate the patent applications and decide whether to grant them.
