Jason Vick, co-chair of the firm’s Electrical Engineering group, is a registered patent attorney who excels at providing foreign and domestic patent portfolio counseling in a range of technology areas. Over the last two decades, he has worked with a full spectrum of clients — individual inventors, growing startups, and Fortune 50 companies — to develop IP protection and monetization strategies tailored to each client’s needs.
“The thing I love most about my job is fostering innovation. We are the only non-destructive aspect of the legal profession. We’re a part of building something, and I enjoy helping my clients expand and improve the technological world,” Jason says.
Jason represents clients mainly in the electrical, computer science, telecommunications, e-business, software, electro-mechanical, semiconductor, medical diagnostic equipment, security systems, encryption, and automotive arts. His background as an electrical engineer, inventor, and former patent examiner with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office helps him advise his clients in all aspects of intellectual property law including foreign patent prosecution, post-grant proceedings, IPRs, CBMs, and preparation of patent validity and freedom-to-operate opinions, both domestically and globally.
“Growing up abroad gives me a unique appreciation for the global impact of intellectual property, and as a former examiner, I provide tailored solutions to my clients who are looking to expand both domestically and abroad,” he says.
Throughout his career, Jason has developed an aggressive patent prosecution strategy that includes one-on-one interviews with patent examiners. Using this strategy, he has singularly conducted thousands of in-person interviews on behalf of his clients. He also excels at tackling difficult procedural challenges with the U.S. Patent Office.
In addition to his domestic patent work, Jason has filed patent applications in almost every country in the world, and he has developed advanced foreign prosecution strategies and portfolio management with a well-established and trusted group of foreign associates.
Regardless of technology, Jason thrives on partnering with clients who are looking to monetize their intellectual assets. “I thoroughly enjoy working with positive individuals and entities who are excited about and developing new technology,” he says.
