Gorrie is a registered patent attorney with expertise in wireless communications, microwave and radar technology, satellite systems, IP networks, cryptographic and secure systems, and military and government technology. He enjoys helping clients acquire IP rights for their innovations. He explains, “A well-written patent application can help protect an invention that a client worked to create.”

Then, wanting to continue to grow, he earned a law degree from St. Mary’s University of San Antonio, Texas.

He is involved in the analysis of patents that relate to wireless communication standards, such as the 3GPP standards for 4G LTE and 5G NR cellular communications, and the IEEE 802.11 standards for WLAN communications, among others. In past work, Greg has served as in-house intellectual property counsel for AT&T and Motorola Inc.
