I am an intellectual property attorney with over 30 years of in-house and law firm experience.

Mr. Yee's practice focuses on intellectual property law, with a concentration in electrical, mechanical, electromechanical, computer architecture, systems, and software technologies. In his 30+ years of experience, Jim has written and/or prosecuted hundreds of patents in both the automotive and motor vehicle and gaming fields. Further, he has extensive experience in drafting and prosecuting patents for medical devices, software, customer loyalty programs, e-commerce systems, and building and construction systems. Jim spent a significant portion of his early career working in-house with Caterpillar Inc. and DaimlerChrysler Corporation. At Caterpillar Inc., he worked as an electrical engineer (where he, among other things, wrote C code for hydraulic excavators) and was subsequently an intellectual property attorney responsible for drafting and prosecuting domestic and foreign patent applications in the electromechanic, electrohydraulic, and computer-related arts.
