Overview

Adam is a patent attorney who is passionate about the science behind client innovations.

As an undergraduate biochemistry major, Adam’s original plan was to continue on to graduate school and pursue a career in research. However, he was intrigued when he heard of the need for attorneys with science backgrounds to work in patent law, and became interested in investigating the intersection of science, business and law. A career in intellectual property, Adam soon realized, was an opportunity to see the scientific work he loved in action.

Today, Adam works with patent prosecution and other transactional and corporate matters for the firm’s intellectual property clients. Through his work with an entrepreneurship legal clinic during law school, Adam discovered a passion for helping businesses grow through new inventions and technologies, and he is excited to have made patent work his career. He finds great satisfaction in using his legal training to help clients bring new ideas to fruition.
