Merchant & Gould is pleased to welcome Joseph W. Bauer to Minneapolis’ legal team. Joseph focuses his practice on patent law for clients in the electrical engineering, computer engineering and software spaces.
From new computer programs to medical devices, Joseph strategizes on behalf of inventors and organizations to protect their ideas and inventions. In his practice, he works to prepare patents and supports clients through the application process. He also prosecutes patents, arguing the patentability of each invention or idea.
Joseph received his B.S. in Computer Engineering and Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and his J.D. from the University of Iowa College of Law. His additional experience as a judicial extern for the US District Court of Minnesota has given him an inside look into the court process. He is also a member of the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA) and the Minnesota Intellectual Property Law Association (MIPLA).
“Joseph adds IP experience and depth to the Electrical & Software Practice Group in Minneapolis, while bringing his fresh perspective to our clients. We are excited to welcome him here,” said Chris Leonard, Managing Director, CEO and Chairman of the Board, Merchant & Gould.
