Zachary Block is a patent attorney in the firm’s Intellectual Property practice group. Registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, his main focus is on the preparation and prosecution of U.S. and foreign patent applications in the electrical arts.

Combining his interest in engineering with that of law, Zach guides inventors, design engineers and in-house counsel through all stages of the patent application process. He concentrates on matters relating to electrical systems, electronics, modeling and simulation, algorithms, and hardware and software development.  

For each patent, Zach proficiently writes his way into the blank spaces to define boundaries, include alternatives and watch for pitfalls. He conducts oral hearings in front of the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences and assists clients on patent infringement issues, preparation of noninfringement and invalidity opinions and patentability, due diligence and patent landscape analyses.

Background

In his previous career as an engineer at Boeing Co., Zach wrote sensor algorithms for the U.S. Navy and, before that, designed and integrated flight simulation systems for U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy aircraft, as well as various other combat systems.

Prior to joining the firm, Zach was in private practice at a boutique intellectual property firm in Dallas.
