When writing and prosecuting patent applications, I go beyond my own engineering background and immerse myself fully in our client’s business. I work closely with both the business teams and the inventors until I have a thorough understanding of what they have created and why – to achieve what specific dreams and goals? Only then do I finalize my own approach and strategies, but with the client’s creative and business mission always the driving force.
