The Advanced Guide to Understanding the Unified Patent Court (UPC) and Unitary Patent (UP) Under the European Patent System
Later this year the Unified Patent Court (UPC) and Unitary Patent (UP) will come into effect, which will impact all users of the European patent system. This webinar will provide an overview of the new legal system and strategic considerations.
Prior Art & White Space Analytics
Prior art and white space analytics are a lesser known analytics discipline, but are very powerful when executed correctly. This program will discuss these and how they are prepared.
5 Patent Prosecution Tips for Polymer Tech

Overview

Edward is a registered patent attorney focused on procuring and managing intellectual property assets and strategic counseling in the electrical, mechanical, software, computer, and biomedical technologies. He understands that intellectual property works differently for each of his clients, depending on their business, their competition, and their desired position in their marketplace. It’s often not enough to just attain intellectual property assets. To optimize the value of a portfolio, and to make informed intellectual property decisions, it’s important to know how each individual asset works in the context of your business, its current and potential value, and its place in the portfolio overall, so that you can continue to invest in valued assets, and not carry underperforming assets.

Edward started his career in patent law at Schwegman as a law clerk in 2006, as a patent attorney in 2007, and became a principal in 2015. He was selected as a Rising Star by Minnesota Super Lawyers in 2013. His practice includes patent prosecution, portfolio management, landscape and freedom-to-operate analysis, non-infringement and invalidity opinions, patent valuation, acquisition, and due diligence, post-grant proceedings, and strategic counseling with regard to intellectual property, product design and development, and patent defense and enforcement.

Prior to law school, Edward was a research and design engineer in the area of electrical and optical devices, where he reverse engineered electrical and optical sensors for patent infringement investigations, and designed and built test equipment to prove patent infringement. He received his Bachelor of Electrical Engineering from the University of Minnesota, where he held concurrent research positions at the Biomedical Micro and Nano Systems and Biomedical Engineering Research Laboratories, and received his Juris Doctor from William Mitchell College of Law.

Outside of work, Edward enjoys exploring the outdoors. You’ll often find him and his wife, and their daughter and dogs on the trails around Cedar Lake and Theodore Wirth Park in Minneapolis, or on the Superior Hiking Trail in northern Minnesota. He frequently competes in long-distance trail-running events and ultramarathons throughout the country and around the world.
