Chuck helps businesses develop, protect, and manage their intellectual property portfolios both domestically and internationally. For nearly 20 years, Chuck has obtained patent protection for his clients` inventions in a wide range of technologies including those related to automotive, hybrid vehicle, lubricant filtration, control systems, electronic, computer/software, material handling, diagnostic, and medical device technologies.
He knows that a client`s intellectual property portfolio must complement their overall business strategy and recognizes that intellectual property rarely has value unless a business makes money from what it protects. Chuck counsels clients on identifying, protecting, licensing, and reviewing the value of their technologies. His experience includes patent application drafting and prosecution, intellectual property portfolio management, patent opinion and clearance, licensing, and trademark prosecution.
