Daniel J. Schwartz



Dan Schwartz is an IP trial lawyer and focuses his practice on patent, trade secrets, trademark, copyright, and licensing disputes. He represents clients in federal court and before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

What do you focus on?

I have litigated cases involving a wide range of technologies, including chemistry and chemical engineering technologies, 3-D vision technologies, wireless communications protocols, telecommunication networking architecture, arterial stents, GIS/geo-location technologies and database management, complex polymer chemistry, QR code technologies, and internet-related technologies. I also have experience advising on inter partes reviews and other proceedings before the USPTO.

In addition, I frequently advise clients on artificial intelligence (AI) and technology. This includes preparing and developing strategies for implementing new technologies, as well as counseling on potential risks.

What do you see on the horizon?

AI will continue to impact all facets of our lives and our businesses. Understanding the legal constructs surrounding AI technologies, and what is likely to happen with regulations/legislation covering AI, will be key to successful enterprises going forward.
