Sheridan Ross is excited to announce it has named three new shareholders to the practice. Scott Bialecki, Eric Bomkamp, and Tyler Boschert were all voted as shareholders starting January 2023. The three attorneys join 21 others who are shareholders in the firm. Bialecki is an attorney with the firm’s litigation group. He has more than two decades of experience handling all aspects of intellectual property and complex commercial litigation. Bomkamp practices with the firm’s electrical engineering practice group, where he helps clients create and develop protection strategies for a range of advanced technologies. Boschert is becoming the second shareholder in the firm’s biotechnology group, where he partners with a variety of clients on chemical, biochemical, and pharmaceutical technologies.
“We are thrilled these three attorneys are joining our group of shareholders because they will elevate the rest of us in our commitment to our clients,” Matt Ellsworth, the firm’s managing partner, said.
Scott Bialecki is a seasoned litigator who leverages his in-depth knowledge of intellectual property, antitrust, and regulatory law to help domestic and international clients develop and safeguard their businesses. Scott’s counsel is rooted in his former role as a regulator with the Federal Trade Commission and his more than two decades of litigating intellectual property lawsuits in federal courts throughout the country. A registered patent attorney, Scott also regularly partners with companies throughout the lifecycle of their products, and he has specific experience counseling companies pursuing opportunities in Asian markets.
Eric Bomkamp is a former patent examiner with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office and now as a registered patent attorney, Eric possesses a unique perspective on intellectual property. Eric uses his knowledge of what motivates patent examiners and his technical background to achieve desirable results for his clients, particularly in patent prosecution where written and verbal interaction with patent examiners is paramount to the patent process. “The goal is to capture what the client is seeking to protect in terms that the examiner is willing to accept,” he says. “Having spent time in an examiner’s position and as a patent attorney, I know that the manner in which attorneys interact with examiners has an impact on the ability to achieve that goal.” With these insights, Eric offers his clients an upper hand throughout the patent prosecution process.
Tyler Boschert’s practice focuses on patent prosecution as well as the enforcement of patents through litigation. He serves as an associate with Sheridan Ross advising clients in all areas of patent prosecution ranging from patent applications to freedom-to-operate opinions. He also has experience in research, legal, and consulting services and analysis of USPTO actions and client responses.
