Ron has substantial experience in all phases of patent prosecution, as well as experience in patent litigation, due diligence, and opinion work.  He has an extensive background in the legal industry with several Boston law firms.  Ron’s practice focuses on technical areas such as:

  • Electrical devices and systems – Internet of Things (IoT), Storage Area Networks (SAN), wireless/mobile communications, antennas, satellite communications, microdisplay systems, optical networks, telephony/ telecommunication networks and systems.  Examples include a head-mounted computing and display device, a wireless, integrated medication reminder system, and a mobile satellite tracking antenna system.
  • Software and firmware – automatic speech recognition (ASR), 3D modeling, PCB testing, computer code analysis/validation, communications security/encryption.  Examples include a collaborative 3D model design system and an encryption key management system.
  • Other technologies – Video/surveillance systems, medical devices, energy storage devices, audio speaker systems, sensor/control systems.

Ron guides clients, from startups to well-established companies, to develop strategies and to craft creative solutions to problems.  Ron works with emerging companies to develop customized frameworks for intellectual property protection, and to develop a practical plan for securing the necessary protection.

Ron’s litigation experience spans many aspects of litigation, from the initial identification of patents for assertion, through trial.  He conducted prior art searches and analyses to develop invalidity positions.  He participated in claim construction analyses and Markman hearings, conducted inventor depositions, selected subject matter experts and worked with those experts to develop Expert Reports.  This litigation experience gives Ron valuable insight into what makes a patent claim strong enough to survive a litigation challenge.

Prior to practicing law, Ron was an electrical engineer at Raytheon for 14 years, designing and developing commercial and military communications systems.  Ron’s Raytheon experience in digital and RF design includes spread spectrum communications, cryptographic systems, high-accuracy frequency reference and chronometer systems, and high-speed electrical interfaces.  His system design experience includes wideband HF systems, microwave systems ranging from 1 to 20 GHz, and a millimeter-wave (93 GHz) IFF system.
