Brandon D. Furdock, MSCE, BSCE

My path to HFZ began at Northwestern’s Innovation Lab. There, I worked in an interdisciplinary team of engineering and law students who developed an AI-based oral argument analysis tool for an Am Law 100 firm. This sharpened my interest in law, leading me to a career in patents. However, I’ve always enjoyed writing technical documents and giving oral presentations on my work. As an academic researcher, I focused on the design and analysis of parallel computing systems. I’ve also worked in the healthcare industry as a software engineer—experience I leveraged when developing a finger vein recognition system during my graduate studies.

I am currently studying law in the evening division at Chicago-Kent. I am excited to contribute to HFZ’s deep well of leadership, talent, and expertise in patent prosecution.
