A Wealth of Experience
I'm Ed Ergenzinger, a US registered patent attorney and adjunct law professor with over 20 years of experience in intellectual property (IP) law. In addition to my law degree, I hold a PhD in neuroscience and have worked with a wide range of technologies. I've practiced within international law firms and as in-house IP counsel for a research institute and a start-up company.
I provide services related to securing patents, trademarks, and copyrights. I also provide IP-related searches and opinions (e.g., patentability, freedom-to-operate/clearance, and infringement/noninfringement) as well as general IP counseling.
I have a wealth of experience helping clients navigate the world of IP, from helping independent inventors file their first patent application to providing strategic patent portfolio planning and management for Fortune 500 companies.
From Around the Corner to Around the World
My clients span the globe. From California to Croatia to Kuwait and beyond. I have extensive experience serving as local IP counsel for companies and law firms outside the United States, and I also have extensive experience managing international filings for clients based in the United States.
- For individuals filing their first patent, trademark, or copyright applications, I can walk you step by step through the process.
- For start-up companies, I can help strategically build and manage your national or international IP portfolio.
- For more established companies, I can not only serve as outside IP counsel, but also offer contract or retainer-based in-house IP counsel services tailored to your needs.
