Jeremy J. Gustrowsky

Partner

Jeremy’s practice extends to all areas of intellectual property. He helps clients with a wide variety of needs to plan and execute strategies for protecting their ideas and branding their products and services. His clients range from entrepreneurs just getting started to mid-size companies, to large well-established corporations. Jeremy has significant experience in preparing and prosecuting patent applications in the U.S. and abroad for a broad range of products including internet and e-commerce software, electronics and control software for hybrid drive systems, conventional and geothermal HVAC systems, gaming systems and related software, ozone sanitizing equipment, transcontinental radio communication systems, and truck lighting devices to name a few examples.

Besides his patent prosecution work, Jeremy assists in litigation and dispute resolution related matters. He has successfully helped both plaintiffs and defendants in domain name disputes using the Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution (UDRP) process. Jeremy advises clients on how to avoid expensive patent litigation, or on how to reduce litigation expenses by invalidating competitor patents in court, or in the Patent Office using procedures like the Inter Partes Review (IPR) process. He also works with clients to provide freedom-to-operate, infringement/non-infringement, invalidity/validity opinions, competition monitoring and other proactive strategies to address competitor protection schemes.

Jeremy is a registered patent attorney who joined the firm with over 12 years of experience working in the information technology field. As a software engineer, manager, and senior consultant, he built and supported primarily web based solutions for e-Commerce, business analysis, e-mail marketing, and insurance services.
