For almost 20 years, Rich Feustel has provided proven and successful results for clients on the West Coast and around the world. Rich advises clients in a variety of technical disciplines, including consumer electronics, integrated circuits, power converters, medical devices, telecommunications, cloud computing, storage area network systems, Internet applications, financial trading systems, and industrial equipment.
Rich focuses on strategic portfolio development – building patent portfolios that achieve real-world results for his clients. Typically, these results are measured by the success of a licensing program, an ability to secure other types of liquidity events, or successful assertions in the U.S. or abroad. Rich has also enjoyed helping inventors who simply want to obtain a patent because it was personally meaningful. Whatever the goal, Rich employs his years of hybrid litigation and prosecution experience to ensure that when it’s time for your portfolio to perform, it will. Rich is also extremely experienced in strategically managing patent office challenges, having defended against (and requested) numerous reexaminations and similar proceedings in the U.S. and abroad.
