Re: Home leave ?

Bear in mind it is challenging to recruit examiners to the office: they are looking for tri-lingual scientist lawyers willing to relocate to another country. Even in national patent offices a failure to attract and retain outstanding and appropriately qualified staff leads to serious issues with patent search and examination quality (USPTO anyone?! and they don't even need tri-lingual immigrants...)
