Review James White

About Me

My practice focuses on obtaining U.S. and foreign patents for clients on software and Internet-related inventions, as well as strategic planning and analysis of patent portfolios, and patent validity and infringement opinions. Before becoming a patent attorney, I received technical degrees from Stanford University related to Computer Science, and worked for over six years as a software engineer in the Silicon Valley.
