Samuel strategically develops patent assets for clients, advises clients on licensing and commercializing their IP portfolios, and has experience in portfolio management and review, infringement analysis, and drafting and negotiating agreements.
Once a patent issues, Samuel protects clients’ patents against post grant proceedings. He also works with clients to bring post grant proceedings to remove patent obstacles owned by third parties.
Samuel has extensive experience as a litigator protecting and asserting clients’ rights in patent, trademark, trade secret, and copyright cases before United States District Courts in a number of jurisdictions in the U.S. In addition to U.S. matters, Samuel has handled intellectual property disputes in Europe and Asia, including cases ranging from website takedown proceedings to patent and trademark infringement matters. In patent matters, Samuel has experience in preparing inter partes review and post-grant review petitions that have succeeded in the institution of trials by the PTAB of the USPTO. He has also assisted clients threatened by infringement allegations by preparing and litigating declaratory judgment actions, including against non-practicing entities.
Samuel has identified trademark counterfeiters in Asia and prevented them from selling, exporting, and importing infringing goods internationally. He has successfully requested and received preliminary and permanent injunctions resulting in the cessation of sale and distribution of infringing products.
Samuel has worked with clients that include individual inventors, large educational institutions, small corporations, and multi-national corporations to provide patent prosecution services, both in the U.S. and internationally, tailored to clients’ particular needs.
