Summary

Narek is the founder and principal IP attorney handling both transactional and litigation matters for the firm. His areas of expertise are in digital image processing, digital signal processing, control systems, and communication system.

Narek has a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering whit a minor in Mathematics. Furthermore, Narek has earned a Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering and was a National Science Foundation GK-12 (NSF-GK12) Fellow. While attending university, Narek obtained the Engineering in Training/Fundamentals of Engineering (EIT/FE) certificate. After engineering school, Narek attended and graduated from California Western School of Law in San Diego and subsequently was licensed to practice law in the State of California. Additionally, Narek is admitted as a Patent Practitioner with the USPTO.

Narek has been intimately involved in the Intellectual Property arena as well as in Research and Development. Narek began working as a Test Engineer at Boeing; working on NAVY communication satellites. Subsequently, he started working at a boutique IP law firm while attending law school as well as interning with the City Attorney’s office with the City of Glendale.

Upon graduation, Narek started this firm and dealt with matters in the IP field as well as in general law practice. After a year of practicing law, Narek transitioned into the federal government as a Patent Examiner at the USPTO. The training and the insight that Narek received while working at the USPTO have proved to be invaluable in private practice. Having first-hand knowledge of how a patent examiner thinks and how the various policies and rules of the USPTO affect an inventor’s ability to receive a patent is a benefit that is passed down to the firm’s clients. After working at the USPTO for over three years, Narek decided to switch gears and focus on the firm on a full time basis.
