At HFZ, I represent fortune 500 and 100 companies on all aspects of patent application preparation, prosecution and patent portfolio development. Additionally, I provide counseling regarding patentability, product clearance, validity and infringement matters in various technological fields.
My patent practice focuses on mechanical and electro-mechanical arts in a broad range of technologies including: aerospace, child care products, fluid control devices and systems, mobile devices, medical devices, window coverings, industrial door and loading dock equipment, marine equipment, firearms, printing technologies, mailers and binding equipment, and coil processing & roll forming systems.
I work with inventors and engineers to quickly grasp and analyze our clients’ inventions and provide the highest level of quality and protection for their intellectual property. HFZ’s collegial work environment enables attorneys to provide a team-oriented analysis of all our clients’ IP matters.
Earlier in my career, I was a mechanical engineer at Abbott Laboratories where I designed several disposable medical devices and provided equipment support to improve manufacturing processes and performance. Later, I practiced law at a general practice firm before joining HFZ.
