Sanjiv Reddy is a creative patent practitioner with particular success in complex Section 101 patent eligibility issues. His practice includes all aspects of pre- and post-America Invents Act (AIA) patent prosecution, diligence, opinions, and re-examinations.

He has worked on many inter partes reviews as back-up counsel, as well as on ex-partes and inter partes re-examinations. He has also assisted in briefing to the Federal Circuit during appeals and has participated in multiple offensive and defensive oral hearings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board of the U.S.Patent and Trademark Office. Additionally, Sanjiv is actively involved in IP litigation and routinely supports attorneys in International Trade Commission Section 337 investigations, Paragraph IV (Hatch-Waxman/ANDA), and District Court cases.

Sanjiv previously worked in business development and co-founded a start-up biomedical division for a company involved in electronic devices in upstate New York. In this capacity, Sanjiv worked on issues with intellectual property – domestic and international patents, component sourcing, and commercial and academic contracting for developing the underlying technology. During this period and leading up to it, Sanjiv also led prototype development efforts based on targeted market segments, which involved the use of a combination of such technologies as neural networks, digital signal processing, application-specific semiconductor processing, semiconductor chip fabrication and memory storage issues with medical device technology, and computer networking for remote access biomedical devices.

Prior to his biomedical work, Sanjiv worked in research relating to contractual and policy requirements in venture capital (VC) funding, VC laches in contracts, and operations research. In addition, he has prior research experience in the field of robotics and automation, including programming of the 8085 chip, large scale integrated (LSI) circuit design, and mechanical design.
