I have been fortunate to be involved in obtaining patents for many interesting inventions
In my present career as a patent agent I have been fortunate to be involved in obtaining patents for many interesting inventions, both mechanical and pharmaceutical in nature. Among the pharmaceutical successes are several medicines that have achieved sales in the order of several billion dollars.
In addition to prosecuting patent applications for start-up companies, I am involved assisting in litigation of important brand medication on behalf of generic manufacturers. I have found this service of representing client and inventors as a patent agent before the various Patent Offices worldwide both challenging and satisfying.
