George Brieger has over 20 years of experience in patent prosecution, including drafting and advocating before the U.S. Patent Office for many hundreds of patent applications in a wide range of technology areas, including network communication and security, machine learning, and other computer software, hardware, and electronics fields.
He began his patent attorney career at a major intellectual property law firm in Washington, DC, where, through frequent in-person meetings at the Patent Office, he obtained a close understanding of how patent examiners of the Patent Office approach patent applications and construe patent claims. He has orchestrated patent prosecution strategy for clients in the U.S. and worldwide, including international (PCT) applications, and has mentored other attorneys in high-quality patent application prosecution and delivering timely work products.
He brings a pragmatic approach to building a client’s patent portfolio, always bearing in mind the business priorities of the client. In addition to his patent prosecution work, George prepares (in)validity, (non)infringement, FTO, and patentability opinions. He also conducts due diligence and provides patent litigation support. Additionally, he has taught seminars on American legal argumentation methods and legal reasoning.
In his spare time, George enjoys visiting historic places. These photos of statues of Aristotle and of Alexander the Great are from a recent visit to Thessaloniki in Northern Greece, not far from where these famous individuals were born.
