Overview

Brad helps technology companies protect their intellectual property.

Brad helps clients strategically consider their technology, business goals, and markets to craft IP protection strategies that make sense in terms of their stage and budget. These strategies include collaboratively developing and managing U.S. and worldwide portfolios of patent and trademark registrations, providing pre-market product design clearance, analyzing potential acquisition portfolios, and negotiating technology licensing agreements.

In addition to a large consumer products practice, Brad particularly enjoys working with clean/green technologies and medical devices. He also has significant experience with telecom, computer, and software patent protection, including representation of Fortune 500 companies in these fields.  Brad has also developed particular niche experience in industrial design protection.
