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.
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.
I am a mentor for the Venture Mentor Service San Antonio. VMS San Antonio is a joint collaboration between The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) and The University of Texas Health San Antonio (UT Health SA). VMS San Antonio consists of San Antonio’s most respected and prestigious mentors that support and advise startups arising from the many entrepreneurship-related activities of UTSA and UT Health SA
I believe that strong protection of intellectual property rights will continue to encourage investment in the development of new technologies.
An NP team led by Los Angeles Intellectual Property partners Seth Levy and Shawn Hansen on Monday expanded its groundbreaking patent enforcement campaign on behalf of the Regents of the University of California (UC). The following articles cover the new complaint, filed with the U.S. International Trade Commission, which seeks an investigation into the unauthorized importation and sale after importation of UC’s patented filament LED lighting technology by General Electric, Savant Systems, Feit Electric, Home Depot, Ikea, and Satco Products.
In addition to Seth and Shawn, the NP team includes Washington, DC Intellectual Property partner Evan Langdon; Los Angeles Intellectual Property partners Staci Riordan, Vincent Yip and Peter Wied, and associate Vince Capati; Chicago Intellectual Property associates Paulina Starostka and Angelo Christopher; San Francisco Complex Commercial Disputes associate Tracy Ickes; and Los Angeles patent specialist Jason Moore.
