Mr Lewis has been registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office since 1997, and has extensive expertise in many areas of Intellectual Property development, protection, and conflict resolution.

His practice has involved patents, copyrights, and trademarks, as well as brand development, dealing with publishers and publishing houses, and developing and administering open source programs.

The United States is now a First-to-File jurisdiction, so getting a patent application on file prior to public disclosure is optimum for most situations.

Utility Patent Applications typically take two to three years to run their course through the patent office, with some subject matter areas taking less time than others.

Please let us know how we can help further your business. We are happy to give lectures to your engineers and others to help them understand the importance of patents, how to engage the patenting process at your company, etc.
