Ben is a patent agent with a background in computer science and patent examination. As a member of the firm’s Intellectual Property practice group, he works closely with attorneys and other members of the IP group on the preparation and prosecution of U.S. and foreign patent applications on behalf of a wide range of clients. He also provides patent portfolio development management as well as intellectual property litigation support.

Ben is skilled in conducting prior art searches including patentability, landscape and freedom-to-operate (FTO) searches. He has been involved in the examination and prosecution of patent applications across a wide range of art classifications, namely computer hardware/software, networking, security, financial technology (fintech) with an emphasis on blockchain applications, medical devices and stereoscopic displays. Ben enjoys working closely with established inventors as well as new inventors who may be unfamiliar with the patent process.
