Question 3

Why do you enjoy this practice area?

I have always been fascinated with IP because of the unique crossover of science and technology with law. If you have a technical background, you certainly want to use it, and it is highly valued in a legal setting. Even if you don’t have a technical background, other IP areas such as trademark and copyright law, as well as the licensing field, are rich with opportunities for practice. If you work in the patent area, you have a lot of choices such as prosecution, litigation, and licensing. I like the variety.
