MEET PATRICK

My Story

My work certainly had its moments — spending four years in Saudi Arabia setting up electronic surveillance and communications systems during the Iran/Iraq war was an unforgettable experience. But when I returned to the states, I was ready for the next adventure.

I’ve always been drawn to the complex, the analytical, and the gray areas that make life interesting. So I enrolled at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law.

Since the beginning of my legal career in the 1990s (aka the internet boom), I’ve been entrenched in the high-tech world of Silicon Valley, first as partner at Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox — one of the most prestigious IP firms in the nation — and then in my own private practice.

I’ve consulted on intellectual property law for high-tech corporations including Google and Intel, helped first-time entrepreneurs secure world-changing patents, and managed high-value patent portfolios that have resulted in millions of dollars in revenue and acquisition deals.

While I have extensive experience counseling massive corporations, there’s an indescribable sense of accomplishment helping solo inventors, startups, and serial entrepreneurs with relentless spirits and endless creativity.

Helping bring new technologies and solutions in the world, watching clients-turned-friends make their first million … it truly never gets old.

I wake up every morning fired up to meet with inventors and innovators like you.
