Shyam Goswami's practice focuses on the preparation and prosecution of patent applications in the chemical and mechanical industries. A former civil engineer, Shyam brings a unique perspective to his practice. "I get to do both of the things I love," he says.
Prior to beginning his legal career, Shyam worked in four countries across three continents where he helped build power plants and managed water sanitation projects. Now, he helps clients protect and enforce their intellectual property portfolios and implement comprehensive protection strategies. He has experience preparing and prosecuting domestic and international patent applications across a range of technologies. He also regularly prepares patent validity, patentability and freedom-to-operate opinions, as well as licensing agreements.
Shyam’s technical and academic background enhance his ability to understand inventors and their inventions from the outset. “There are principles I understand because of my coursework in chemistry, physics and computer programming.” It’s a skill his clients highly value as he is working to solve new problems protecting their intellectual assets.
Shyam earned his bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Iowa State University, and his law degree from The University of Iowa College of Law. While in law school, Shyam served as a research assistant to Professor Herber Hovenkamp, an anti-trust expert. He also worked as a clerk on the Washington Supreme Court with Justice Charles Wiggins.
