Glenn Law


Glenn Law is a retired partner and intellectual property lawyer with over 30 years of experience counseling clients on patent matters, including legal opinions, patent prosecution, product clearance, defense of infringement allegations, due diligence investigations, patent enforcement and licensing and litigation. Glenn has argued dozens of ex parte appeals before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board and its predecessor. He is a member of the firm’s Electronics and IP Litigation Practices.

Glenn has provided his clients with well over 250 written legal opinions on the scope, infringement, validity, and enforceability of patents, including opinions on products having hundreds of millions of dollars in annual sales. Glenn applies this experience in analyzing the vulnerabilities and strengths of the patents obtained by others in the course of his own patent prosecution practice, to provide comprehensive and enforceable protection for his own client’s innovations. Glenn carries out the philosophy that top-notch patent procurement is vital to protecting an organization’s innovations and investments in technology, and that it requires a depth of experience to protect them fully.

As a former chair of Foley’s IP Policies, Procedures, Best Practices and Training committee, Glenn is very knowledgeable on patent office procedure, IP loss prevention and training.
