Biography

Jamie focuses his practice in the areas of patent preparation/prosecution, expert opinions, technology transfer agreements, trademarks and litigation with technical expertise in chemical engineering, organic chemistry, biotechnology, polymers, semiconductors, mechanical engineering, materials and process machinery. He received his undergraduate degree from Johns Hopkins University (B.S.Ch.E.) and his law degree from American University. Jamie is fluent in Japanese and studied at Keio University in Tokyo, Japan as well as the City University of Hong Kong in China.

•Jamie has over ten years experience in drafting and prosecuting patent applications and has successfully appealed and argued a large number of patent applications in front of the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences, including an application which he appealed and argued before the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. In addition he has successfully registered many trademarks and copyrights for his clients.

•He is often requested to draft and obtain patents on critical technology for midsized companies, recent examples being a series of seven patents for a manufacturing client on their pioneering process machinery and a series of sixteen patents for a foreign client that sells products containing the chemical technology globally.

•Jamie frequently writes legal opinions on the validity and possible infringement of US patents in the chemical and mechanical areas.

•He regularly visits the offices and research centers of his clients to directly study his clients' technology and advise his clients.

•Beyond intellectual property, Jamie has negotiated successful results in the areas of contracts and tax law on a pro bono basis for clients with financial hardship.

Before Edwards Wildman

Jamie spent the beginning years of his career practicing law with his father in an intellectual property practice his father had founded. This experience in a mid-sized firm afforded him the opportunity to learn to handle every type of matter that came to the firm in addition to patents and legal opinions, including litigation brief writing, trademarks, copyrights, licensing, trade secrets, trade dress, performance rights and legal research and investigation. Jamie worked in all three domestic offices, handling both the domestic and foreign practices, and the Tokyo office of the previous firm and devoted time to learning Japanese. Significant time was also spent teaching associates and foreign trainees, with organized lectures, the basics of patent law to prepare them to pass the patent bar exam and become successful patent prosecutors.

Besides Edwards Wildman

Jamie enjoys kayaking with his wife on the Chesapeake Bay, hiking and traveling. In summers past, he hand made their sea worthy tandem kayak out of mahogany. Jamie is active in events in his community and remains active in helping his college, holding a position on the alumni council and participating in the host family program.
