As a member of the Technology, Manufacturing & Transportation industry team, Bob counsels clients in a wide range of intellectual property matters. He assists clients in obtaining and securing United States and international intellectual property rights through patent prosecution, trademark prosecution and applying for copyright registrations. Once a client has obtained intellectual property rights, Bob assists clients in managing their intellectual property holdings, as well as maintaining and enforcing their rights. Bob also drafts many intellectual property-related agreements for clients, including, patent, copyright and trademark licenses and assignments.
Prior to becoming an attorney and joining the firm, Bob was a structural engineer consulting in the commercial construction industry. This experience has been invaluable in Bob’s patent practice, helping him visualize and break down complex interaction and placement of elements into their component parts. Bob’s prior experience has also been instrumental in developing an approach that looks at where his work on a particular matter fits within the larger scheme of a client’s business operations. This approach not only benefits the client on the particular matter at hand, but also minimizes the potential for that matter to frustrate the client’s larger objectives.
