Ryan M. Fitzpatrick , BSME

Prior to HFZ, I worked as a Mechanical Engineer at Transco Products Inc. where I designed piping systems for nuclear power plants. In this work I studied references and other engineering documents to determine the structure and operational characteristics of complex devices.


As a Patent Engineer at HFZ, I use my engineering experience to assist in the preparation and prosecution of patents in the mechanical, electro-mechanical and computer arts. My primary focus is on conducting prior art, patentability and clearance searches in order to assist clients with their intellectual property portfolio management decisions.
