CHRIS TOBIN is a partner in the Washington, DC office. He specializes in high technology intellectual property issues. In addition to having eighteen years of experience in the intellectual property law firm environment, he has previously served as a patent examiner and as senior patent counsel for a large multinational corporation.

Chris has particular experience in all stages of patent prosecution and draws upon his prior work in patent litigation, patent examination, and corporate intellectual property management to provide a unique blend of counseling services. In addition to his many years of experience with original patent

preparation and prosecution, he has extensive background in post-grant procedures, including Reissue, Reexamination, Supplemental Examination, and Inter Partes Review.

He also has experience overseeing and managing intellectual property portfolios, and assessing portfolios for planned and potential acquisition. His previous efforts have included auditing and revamping existing patent portfolios, due diligence in relation to portfolio acquisition, and several instances of strategically developing and prosecuting patents that have resulted in improved positioning and substantial licensing revenue.

He has a broad range of technology experience. His work primarily involves electrical and computer-related technologies including networks, electrical circuitry, display and imaging devices, semiconductors, electronic commerce, complex financial models and related software.

Chris holds a JD and a BSEE degree from Villanova University. He is admitted to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and is a member of the District of Columbia,
