Leveraging my experience as outside intellectual property counsel to some of the largest companies in the world, I help in-house IP teams, business leaders, entrepreneurs, and startup founders strategically protect intellectual property that furthers business goals.
I have written and prosecuted over 500 patent and trademark applications in my career, most of which related to electronic or software-based technology.
Significant projects include:
- Patenting the autonomous vehicle platform of a large automotive company
- Securing patents related to fiber optic networks, satellite communication networks, media content delivery systems, and consumer products for major telecommunications companies
- Patenting medical sensors and surgical robots for medical device companies
I am a thought leader in various patent-related topics including subject matter eligibility issues under 35 U.S.C. § 101 and enablement issues under 35 U.S.C. § 112, particularly as they relate to electronics and software-based concepts. I actively participate in various national professional organizations and presently serve as the membership chair of the Michigan Intellectual Property Law Association (MIPLA).
