Consider a situation where  a person (in US) works as a scientist for  company A. Can he work simultaneously as  a Patent agent - not for A, but as an independent contractor? Is it not possible that he may get to read inventions of companies which are competitors of A and the inventions are related to his  field of work?

Exactly as Wiscagent said, which is why I asked for a specific situation.  If you are a scientist, sure you can do work (on your own time) doing patents for others.  Before discussing the invention with a potential client, you ask for a brief background that doesn't necessarily disclose anything about the instant invention, and you decide if there's a conflict of interest.  Something along the lines "I would like to hire you in patent prosecution matters regarding a plastic bottle from which you can drink without your lips touching any plastic" would suffice as background.  If you are working as a polymer engineer in innovative blow molding container design, you most likely shouldn't be representing this client.
