Recognized, The Best Lawyers in America
(Steven Naifeh & Gregory White Smith eds.,
Woodward/White, Inc.)

Best Lawyers Award Badge

Andy Szuwalski represents clients from large multinational companies to sole inventors in protecting their intellectual property assets through the procurement, analysis, licensing and enforcement of their rights in the U.S. and throughout the world. He is experienced in a broad range of technologies, including:

  • Electrical devices, such as analog and digital circuits, semiconductor fabrication, computer software-based systems, wired/wireless communications devices and electric motors
  • Electromechanical devices, including product handlers and sorters, and spray systems
  • Mechanical devices, such as oil and gas exploration equipment.

Andy is passionate about understanding not only the details of a client’s technology, but also specifics of the client’s business and competition. He knows what drives the development and sale of products incorporating that technology, and advises clients on potential risks and monetization opportunities. Andy’s representation further concerns evaluating the scope of a competitor’s intellectual property rights and assisting clients in challenging the validity and enforceability of the competitor’s IP rights. This includes reexamination or PGR challenges, which offer clients effective alternatives to litigation.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
