About Me

I am an expert in computer software patent prosecution and litigation. I have drafted numerous patent applications in the fields of a variety of technologies, such as computer software, telecommunication, wireless networking, Internet and mechanical device. Additionally, I have litigated a number of patent cases, trademark cases and copyright cases.


I have worked nearly twenty years at a number of technology companies in different roles, ranging from device driver programmer to engineering manager and startup founder. Additionally, I am an inventor for thirty patents. I truly understand the needs of both corporations and individual inventors. I am passionate about professionalism and product quality.


I speak and write fluently in both English and Chinese. My working experience in both US and China enables me to efficiently interact with clients from either country.


I am a licensed patent attorney as well as licensed to practice law in the State of Illinois.


Languages Spoken: Chinese, Jinyu, Mandarin, English

  • Konrad V. Sherinian

    I endorse this lawyer. I have worked with Mr. Bi on a number of matters for a wide variety of clients, ranging from simple mechanical inventions to complicated software inventions. He has excellent knowledge of software, mathematics, and other technical areas - this knowledge allows him to quickly grasp the subject matter of an invention and get into drafting an application, rather than spending (and billing for) a lot of time learning the subject area. In addition, he is a pleasure to work with, and has a solid understanding of the principles that make for a good patent application.
