About Peter

Learn Peter’s areas of practice.

My practice focuses on patent procurement and counseling. I have represented a broad range of clients before the USPTO and have collaborated with associates from the European Patent Office, the Japanese Patent Office, the Canadian Patent Office and others to provide a thoughtful, collaborative approach to obtaining a global patent portfolio.

My primary focus has been the representation of several Fortune 500 companies in the medical device industry in connection with an array of medical devices including transcatheter heart valve replacement, embolic protection, spinal cord and deep brain stimulation, microcatheters, ultrasound transducers, pattern-recognition imaging, balloon angioplasty, drug infusion systems, microstimulators, neurovascular intervention, lead insertion methods, hemodialysis, cochlear implants, infrared thermometers, continuous positive airway pressure systems, orthodontics, radiation therapy, sterilization techniques, stents and heart valve repair. 

I also work on a wide range of technologies ranging from electronic hardware and software (e.g., electrochemical batteries, circuit boards, electrical connectors, wireless locators, deconvolution and web-based applications) to various mechanical devices (e.g., compressors, valves, laser welding, and appliances).

Relationship: Co-worker
"I had the privilege of working closely with Peter on a number of matters. Not only was he well-versed in patent law and application drafting, but he also exhibited a depth of knowledge with respect to medical devices that made the application drafting and subsequent prosecution proceed quickly and efficiently toward allowance. I look forward to the opportunity of working with him again and learning from his experience."
