  • John E. Lord

    Andrew and I worked at the same firm on patent litigation for a number years. Andrew is a highly skilled patent lawyer and a consummate professional. I remember him coming up with novel legal theories and strategies that most lawyers would miss. He also has an approachable personality that makes him easy to work with. I endorse Andrew and would be glad to recommend him to individuals and companies looking for a patent attorney.
