A former U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) Patent Examiner, John Freeman focuses his practice on patent preparation and prosecution; counseling; licensing; and opinion work, particularly in the electro-mechanical arts. He has extensive experience preparing and prosecuting both domestic and international patents. Clients regularly come to John for opinions regarding patentability and patent validity, as well as potential infringement liability for new products. He has recent experience with the new post-grant review proceedings instituted under the America Invents Act.
With both undergraduate and graduate degrees in physics, John’s technical background gives him a strong foundation for understanding his clients’ innovations. He helps clients think forward by identifying aspects of their inventions they might not have thought to patent, giving them even more protection for valuable, market-leading innovations. A dedicated advocate for his clients before the USPTO, John takes an aggressive approach to achieve the broadest patent protection possible.
