“I add value to our clients through growth of global patent protection and defensive freedom-to-operate analyses.”
Daniel focuses his practice on global patent preparation and prosecution, clearance/freedom-to-operate analyses, and invalidity studies of competitors' patents. He works primarily in the electromechanical and chemical arts, particularly for automotive and medical clients.
Daniel has automotive patent experience with turbochargers, variable camshaft timing phasers, transmission technologies, and hybrid-electric powertrain systems and component architectures. He also has medical patent experience with ENT surgical drills and instruments.
Daniel first joined Howard & Howard’s Intellectual Property Intern Program, throughout almost five years of which he obtained a comprehensive legal education on a wide variety of intellectual property matters.
Prior to joining Howard & Howard, he gained valuable experience as a plastics engineering intern at Uniform Color Company. There, he worked with a multitude of thermoplastic and engineering resins, including styrenics, nylons, acrylics, polycarbonates, and polyolefins, and gained experience with injection molding machines and screw extruders.
While pursuing his education, Daniel engaged in research using autocatalytic electroless deposition to direct nickel-phosphorous alloys onto ABS. Daniel also led the Michigan State Chapter of the Society of Plastics Engineers as its President.
