    I have extensive experience in preparing, filing, and prosecuting patent applications in the semiconductors, materials science, chemical engineering, nanotechnology, mechanical engineering, software-based systems, and biomedical fields.

  2. Intellectual property
    My practice covers a wide spectrum of intellectual property services including, preparation and prosecution of patent and trademark applications, opinion services regarding the scope and strength of patents, counseling regarding the protection, enforcement, and licensing of intellectual property rights, and due diligence regarding business transactions involving intellectual property.

    15 years, 30 cases

I have over 9 years of experience in patent preparation and IP portfolio management.

            I graduated from the Suffolk University Law School with a J.D. degree and concentration in intellectual property law, patent law specialization. I am admitted to practice before the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office and I am licensed to practice law in Massachusetts.

            After graduation, I worked as a patent examiner at the USPTO, conducting searches and analyses, and preparing office actions on the applications related to the semiconductor fabrication and other relevant fields. I worked as a consultant at a small IP boutique law firm in Lexington, Massachusetts. I managed PCT patent applications related to the biotechnology and chemical engineering fields, including nanotechnology, semiconductors, and device fabrication areas. Currently, I work as a solo patent attorney on prosecuting patent applications.

Also, I hold an M.S. degree in chemical engineering with specialization in the semiconductor device technology and I have extensive experience in the field of fabrication, testing and characterization of semiconductor devices.

I am experienced in managing IP portfolio, writing patent applications, as well as conducting patent search and analysis using such search programs as PatentCafe, Delphion, LexisNexis, and Westlaw, as well as using USPTO search programs such as EAST and WEST.

This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
I was recommended him through Boston Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts and he in a very short amount of time managed to get my copyright and trademark paperwork registered in a reasonable time. Highly would recommend for anyone looking for a lawyer.

Excellent service
Ilya is a patent attorney with sound understanding of what is required. I recommend Ilya if you want an honest and thorough attorney that will go above and beyond. I am highly impressed with Ilya's honesty. We agreed on the price to conduct a patent search, upon completion he told me he didn't spend up to the estimated number of hours and billed me for half the agreed price. You don't see that a lot these days. He also gave me valuable advice on how to go about my idea. Without reservation I recommend Ilya, I was very satisfied with his services and I am confident you will be too.

Patent Application Filing
He did a great job researching, writing up and filing both my patent applications. Great communication and follow up! I look forward to continuing to work together as the patents progress through the USPTO.

Hired Twice
I would definitely rehire Ilya Libenzon again. He has done excellent work for me twice. Both times he kept me well informed with his progress and took the time to explain any questions I had. The work itself was excellent. He included computerized designs for my patent and they were spot on. All around I was very happy with Ilya.

Highly recommended lawyer
I have very positive experience in working with Mr. Libenzon. He prepared and submitted a non-provisional patent application for me, which was issued by USPTO about one year after the submission.
