Biography

Greg Bondarenko helps clients acquire strategic intellectual property assets in highly competitive industries. He protects incremental as well as pioneering inventions relating to a variety of products such as consumer products, medical devices, recreational vehicles, automotive components, agricultural and industrial equipment, sporting goods, firearms and archery products. He understands and appreciates the importance of ingenuity, having grown up on a farm in Michigan where he learned that success requires hard work, perseverance and the ability to solve problems creatively. “Give me an IP-related problem and I will do whatever it takes to figure it out and provide my client with efficient and forward-thinking advice,” Greg says. To Greg, it’s more than protecting an idea: “I’m helping someone protect their ingenuity and creativity, which is often their lifeblood.”
