Richard P. Beem: With more than 30 years of experience in patent law across a range of technologies and industries in the U.S. and abroad, Rich enjoys working with each client to serve their business and to protect their intellectual property. From preparation, filing, and prosecution of patent applications to litigation, trials and appeals, he assists clients in securing their intellectual property rights — and, more importantly, contributes to the success of their innovations and ultimately to the growth of their business. To serve clients’ national and global intellectual property needs, Rich maintains relationships with top lawyers who assist in protecting inventions and technologies in many other regions and countries.

Claire E. Saskowski: Claire meets with clients, scientists and engineers to gather invention disclosure and technical details for preparation and prosecution of patent applications – including office action response drafting across a range of technical fields, preparing for examiner interviews, reviewing preliminary patent searches, filing patent elements, and drafting briefs for appeals and post grant procedures. She works closely with in-house counsel, technical managers, and inventors to advance protection of proprietary technologies and ensure intellectual property needs of the client are met.
