Greg is a senior patent attorney at Schwegman, Lundberg & Woessner. Greg has been practicing patent law for a decade and has drafted and prosecuted multiple patent applications to issue in the United States and abroad. Greg has worked with European, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Taiwanese, Indian, Canadian, and Australian counsel to prepare and prosecute foreign patent applications for his clients. Greg frequently conducts “patent mining” sessions with clients, where he visits the client’s office, meets with inventors and in-house counsel, and identifies and selects inventions for patenting (or for coverage as a trade secret).
Greg has spoken about patenting inventions in artificial intelligence and machine learning before the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA), the United States Patent & Trademark Office, Strafford Publications, and internally at Schwegman and with clients. In addition to machine learning and artificial intelligence, Greg has also drafted and prosecuted patents related to mobile and WiFi networks, operating systems, cryptography, security systems, control systems, and robotics.
Greg is very communicative and believes in keeping clients abreast of what is happening with the patent applications that are entrusted to him. Greg is also a strong believer in Patent Attorney-Examiner Interviews, and tries to conduct an interview before submitting a response to a US Patent Office Action. He also takes advantage of the Patent Office’s After Final Consideration Pilot (AFCP) program to interview Examiners in order to figure out how to bring the patent application to allowance and/or advance patent prosecution.
Prior to joining Schwegman, Greg practiced at McDermott, Will & Emery in Boston, MA. Greg holds a J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School, dual Bachelor’s Degrees in Computer Science and Mathematics from MIT, and a Master’s Degree in Computer Science from MIT. Greg is a native speaker of both English and Russian.
