Leveraging my electrical engineering degree and work experience, the focus of my practice is advising clients of all sizes in a wide range of technology areas, including software, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, data storage and security, memory access and control, network management, virtualization, analog and digital circuitry, image and signal processing, and radio frequency.
I have extensive experience with drafting patent applications, patent prosecution, writing briefs across all stages of the appeals process, and providing guidance on claim infringement, patent enforcement, and other intellectual property matters. One recent case involved drafting a clearance opinion for a client faced with patent infringement threats from a competitor. The opinion evaluated the competitor’s entire patent portfolio and ultimately resulted in all threats being dropped without the client having to incur any litigation expenses.
As technology continues to advance and expand the manner in which inventions provide utility, subject matter eligibility under 35 USC § 101 will remain a dynamic environment with shifting eligibility requirements.
