Peter Krusiewicz is an associate in the Intellectual Property Practice Group, where he focuses on patent litigation and patent prosecution.
I focus my practice on patent law, including litigation, prosecution, and licensing. I have experience prosecuting patents in various industries, such as mechanical apparatus, mechanical and manufacturing processes, software, chemistry, and others. I have worked on patent litigation teams that involved cases filed in United States district courts and the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB).
I have experience preparing noninfringement opinions and invalidity contentions filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office and foreign patent offices. I have assisted clients with filing foreign patent applications and translating patent applications and other technical documents from Polish to English.
I have a background in mechanical engineering and have worked as a manufacturing engineer at one of the world’s largest construction equipment manufacturers, where I oversaw assembly operations for vehicle components such as brakes and differentials.
With the standard of what constitutes patentable subject matter on 35 U.S.C. § 101 in doubt, I believe the Supreme Court’s upcoming decision regarding §101 will impact both existing patent portfolios and future prosecution strategy.
