Biography

With over 20 years of experience in intellectual property law, Tracey Truitt serves clients of all sizes across industries including agribusiness, food, health care, biotechnology and life sciences. He counsels clients on patent, trademark, and copyright acquisition, licensing, enforcement issues, due diligence, prosecution, litigation and other general business matters.

A testament to the quality of his work, Tracey has been serving many of his clients for over a decade, and some for more than two. In his primary role as a patent attorney, Tracey is dedicated to gaining in-depth knowledge about each client’s invention and the technology surrounding it, in order to develop strategies and arguments that will impact their bottom line and drive success throughout their product portfolio. By getting involved early and taking a proactive approach to the patenting process, Tracey has saved clients time, money and energy by allowing them to focus research and resources on promising avenues rather than just building their patent portfolios.
