A former mechanical engineer in the aerospace industry, Andrew Stover possesses the hands-on knowledge so advantageous in technically complex patent prosecution matters. He uses that technical expertise and 15 years of concentrated patent experience in preparing and prosecuting complicated U.S, foreign and international patent applications, as well as in counseling clients on all aspects of portfolio building, patent protection options, and forward-thinking patent strategy and management.
Lauded by Intellectual Asset Management magazine in 2015 for his “superb knowledge of patent law and practical approach to counseling,” Andrew’s practice is focused on the mechanical and electro-mechanical arts, including medical devices for imaging, home health, pediatrics, and respiratory care. His other patent prosecutions include those in highway safety, office furniture products, textile machinery and products, agricultural machinery and products and packaging machinery and products.
Andrew enjoys building a profitable portfolio strategy from the ground up. A strong communicator on the technical side, he works with a product’s creators and engineers, then reviews the competitive landscape in order to provide the fullest protection for current applications as well as opportunities that can be harvested in the future. Throughout the process, Andrew counsels his clients on all aspects of intellectual property protection including licensing, patent non-infringement and invalidity opinions as well as litigation, post-grant review, and IPR proceedings options.
