James Urzedowski is a registered patent attorney focusing on protecting innovations relating to medical devices, computer technologies, and a diverse range of mechanical inventions. James has been preparing and prosecuting patent applications for over 20 years. Working with Fortune 500 companies to individual inventors, over the years James has helped his clients maintain and grow their existing portfolios as well as creating them from scratch. He has worked in a wide variety of technical fields: from plants to robotic-manufacturing lines; from hunting decoys to fishing hooks. In addition to patent applications and prosecution, James has worked extensively with his clients in all areas of intellectual property, including trademarks, copyrights, and licensing agreements.
When not in the office, James lives out in the middle of nowhere on a small hobby farm with his wife, kids, chickens, goats, sheep, turkeys and assorted wildlife. James is always looking to learn new things and apply what he has learned on the farm. Between massive yearly gardening plots, and sometimes overly enthusiastic building and landscape projects (as well as the efforts required just trying to maintain the farm), James has been educated (sometimes against his will) in topics as diverse as animal and plant husbandry, to small engine repair. James firmly believes that it is these practical and sometimes hard-earned experiences that have been the most useful in helping him understand and appreciate the great variety of technologies and perspectives with which clients have approached him over the years.
Specializing in all areas of patent and trademark application preparation and prosecution, James particularly enjoys working with individuals to develop their ideas into commercially viable products, regardless of patentability. Along with everyone at the firm James is passionate about maximizing efficiencies, protecting his clients’ rights and serving them to the best of his ability. If you have an invention you wish to protect, or just an idea you are hoping to develop into something more, give James a call.
