Navigating complex patent matters through an engineering lens
Robert utilizes his experience as an engineer to understand his clients’ inventions and to identify opportunities to protect them to leverage commercial value. He offers practical and strategic counsel on issues related to consumer electronics, software and the manufacturing/mechanical industry, and he provides his clients with patentability, freedom to operate, and infringement and validity opinions. In addition to patent drafting and prosecution, Robert also offers counsel on contractual IP matters.
Prior to his legal studies, Robert interned as a hardware engineer at NVIDIA Corporation in Santa Clara, California, and Apple Inc. in Cupertino, California. He also interned as a programmer at Cineplex Entertainment in Toronto, and at Ontario Die International in Kitchener, Ontario.
During his graduate studies, Robert designed, taped-out and characterized high-speed microchips for telecommunications.
