Hello and welcome to my profile. I am presently Chief Intellectual Property Counsel and Assistant General Counsel of Weyerhaeuser. I have been an IP attorney for almost 30 years, previously having worked at Union Carbide Corporation and American Cyanamid Company. I am admitted in Washington, New York, Connecticut and before the US PTO as well as several federal courts. My experience ranges from patents, trade secrets, trademarks, licensing and joint ventures.
Licensed since 1980
I have worked with Paul for over 5 years in the area of patent law. Paul's knowledge of patent law and practical utilization of that law to benefit his client in my view is excellent. Equally impressive is his fair treatment of colleagues that work directly for him and outside counsel that he hires. He is a straight shooter who practices open communication. I feel fortunate to count Paul as a friend and a professional colleague.

I worked for Paul Leuzzi for 3 years and it was an absolute pleasure. In his role as Chief IP Counsel, Paul showed a tremendous understanding of the law; a business sense that provided value to his clients; and managerial skills which allowed for effective supervision of the IP department. His mentorship provided me with the requisite skill set to head my own IP department. I believe Paul Leuzzi to be a dynamic individual who would be a valuable asset to any client.
