Jason L. Moore, Ph.D.

Jason is a professional specialist in the Patents group. He leverages his extensive experience in industry and training as a chemist to assist clients in protecting their intellectual property.

What do you focus on?

Over my career, I have worked on analyzing and protecting intellectual property assets, including working closely with inventors and academic institutions as they transferred research projects to commercial applications. I have extensive experience in research and applications involving organic chemistry, organometallic chemistry, supramolecular chemistry, catalysts, monomers, polymers and composite materials.

I also conducted and managed research in a commercial laboratory. In addition, I am a co-inventor on several patents, so I understand the innovation process and can effectively work with inventors to help them protect their intellectual property.

Patent Prosecution

Particular areas I focus on include chemistry, materials science, organic chemistry, polymer chemistry, organometallic chemistry, biochemistry, diagnostics, therapeutics, pharmaceuticals, small molecules, proteomics, disease biomarkers, drug delivery, nanotechnology, and diagnostic/imaging agents.

What do you see on the horizon?

I believe that strong protection of intellectual property rights will continue to encourage investment in the development of new technologies.

Representative Experience

  • Represent The Regents of the University of California in a groundbreaking patent enforcement campaign to protect its rights in a revolutionary new generation of light bulb technology known as filament LED that was invented by a Nobel laureate-led team at UC Santa Barbara. The campaign includes litigation before the U.S. International Trade Commission, the U.S. District Courts for the Central District of California and Eastern District of New York, and the Patent Trial and Appeal Board at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
