Andrew's clients are idea people who see problems and solve them. He sees his role as guiding them through the risks and rewards of protecting and expanding upon their ideas so they can build and grow a company.

Andrew focuses his practice on patent portfolio strategy and development, U.S. and foreign patent prosecution, and intellectual property diligence. He has represented clients during prosecution and reexamination proceedings, as well as in appeals before the U.S. Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences and the appellate divisions of foreign patent offices. Andrew's diligence experience includes both target- and investor-side IP diligence in the context of company formation, funding, and acquisition.

He is experienced in a broad array of technology areas, including mechanical and electro-mechanical devices, plastic products and processes, and software. Specifically, he has experience in medical diagnostic and treatment devices, slide imaging systems, microarray printers, consumer products, robots, personal defense devices, building materials, solar energy systems, materials processing and manufacture, athletic and exercise equipment, computer peripherals, and computer component testing equipment.

During law school, Andrew was a full-semester intern to the Honorable Arthur J. Gajarsa, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. He previously worked for an engineering consulting firm.

Living in Colorado, Andrew likes to spend his free time outdoors snowboarding, hiking, and backpacking. He's an excellent cook, and he'll take on any home project that allows him to wield a drill.
