In addition to patent preparation and prosecution, Adam leverages his experience in other aspects of IP law, such as client consultation in the areas of patent strategy development, identifying inventions for portfolio development tailored to the particular needs and requirements of each client's business, post-grant proceedings including IPR and PGR before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), preparing validity and infringement opinions, clearance investigations, and preparing trademark and copyright applications.
