Gene’s particular specialty as a patent attorney is in the area of strategic patent consulting, patent application drafting and patent prosecution. He has worked with independent inventors and start-up businesses in a variety of different technology fields. As an electrical engineer with a computer engineering focus he finds himself frequently assisting inventors and small businesses in this space. He works with those pursuing patent protection for their innovations and the majority of his practice is focused on software, computer implemented methods, business methods and Internet innovations. He also does work with electrical and mechanical inventions as well.

Known by many as “The IPWatchdog.” Gene started the widely popular intellectual property website IPWatchdog.com in 1999, and since that time the site has had millions of unique visitors. The ABA Journal has recognized IPWatchdog.com as one of the top 100 blogs for lawyers by lawyers in 2009 through 20013. For 3 of the last 4 years (2010, 2012, 2013) IPWatchdog.com was recognized as the top intellectual property law blog, and in January 2014 IPWatchdog.com was honored to be inducted into the ABA Blawg Hall of Fame.

Gene is also the inventor of a unique invention mining and patent drafting system, known as theInvent + Patent System, which enables the submission of detailed answers that form the basis of an extraordinarily detailed invention disclosure and which can be filed immediately as a provisional patent application.

Between 2003 and 2007 Gene wrote a monthly column for Patent World and served on the Patent World editorial board. He has also previously taught a variety of intellectual property courses at the law school level, including patent law, patent claim drafting, patent prosecution, copyright law, trademark law and introduction to intellectual property.
