Michael M. Morris

Partner

As an inventor of an issued U.S. Patent, Mike understands his client’s perspective in dealing with intellectual property matters. His practice encompasses all areas of intellectual property law, including identifying, procuring, and enforcing patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets for businesses. Specifically, Mike has significant experience in preparing and prosecuting medical device and mechanical patent applications in the U.S. and abroad; providing freedom-to-operate, infringement/non-infringement, and invalidity/validity opinions; and monitoring competitor intellectual property.

Prior to joining the Firm, Mike spent time at a number of medical device companies developing and managing their IP portfolios and monitoring competitors. He also designed strategies and methods to identify competitors’ infringing products and worked with engineers and researchers to design and patent around competitors’ patents. Mike gained valuable experience performing materials science research on cutting edge shape memory alloys at a national laboratory to implementing lean manufacturing techniques as a production engineer at a manufacturing plant.

Mike is actively involved with Traders Point Christian Church, volunteers as a coach and practice judge for the IU Maurer School of Law’s national IP moot court teams, and enjoys participating in shooting competitions with friends and family.
