MASTER OF AT LEAST ONE

UNDERSTANDING GLOBAL MARKETS
Peter has represented a broad range of clients before the USPTO and has collaborated with associates from the European Patent Office, the Japanese Patent Office, the Canadian Patent Office and others. As the world has gotten smaller, it is not uncommon for a company to design a product in a first country, source the raw ingredients from a second country, manufacture the parts in a third country, assemble the product in a fourth country and sell the finished product in dozens of other countries. Peter understands that today's global economy requires an approach to patenting that optimizes patent protection in this complex environment.
