I agree with shivaswrath.  Why bother Ph.D. if you are interested in IP?

Because I have also studied economics so I have been looking for a way to bring biology and business together. Being a patent agent appears to be ideal.

 
The best way to bring biology and business together is to work at a biotech startup.  Having a PhD helps; being a patent agent does not.  At a startup you can do bench work, and you can be part of the management and try to sc**** up venture capital, work out mergers, get lots of stock options, etc.
 
Even better, if you work for a venture capital firm, you can analyze biotechs and decide whether to dump millions into what might be risky ventures.  Again, having a PhD might help; being a patent agent does not.  Having a business degree helps too.
