PRACTICE AREAS AND INDUSTRIES SERVED

Anthony Amert assists with prosecuting patents in the manufacturing, packaging, material science, oilfield, electronics, software, aerospace, automotive, and telecommunication industries.  This work includes meeting with inventors to discuss new applications, drafting new patent applications, drafting responses to office actions, and management of international prosecution.

EXPERIENCE

After completion of his academic work, Mr. Amert was employed as a full time researcher and worked on a diverse array of research projects including development of new methods of packaging electronics, rapid manufacturing and prototyping of devices, microwave frequency materials metrology, direct write printing of electronic circuitry and photovoltaic devices, and development of microwave frequency devices such as antennas for communications applications. As a researcher, Mr. Amert was first introduced to intellectual property when some of his discoveries were found to be of commercial value and needed patent protection. This exposure perked his interest in the area and led him to focus his career on intellectual property development and protection.

At Osha Liang, Mr. Amert works with small to medium sized entities as well as large corporations to identify, capture, protect their intellectual property.
