Ralph Selitto is a registered patent attorney having wide-ranging experience in all aspects of intellectual property law. Over the course of his decades-long career, he has assisted clients in the development and management of global patent, trademark and copyright portfolios, while counseling them on the strategic commercialization and valuation of their portfolios. His work has included the preparation and prosecution of numerous U.S. and foreign patent and trademark applications, as well as drafting license agreements and infringement, validity and freedom-to-operate opinions. Ralph’s efforts in these areas have allowed him to develop broad experience in the evaluation of intellectual property, from both a legal perspective and a business perspective.

In addition to his considerable prosecution and transactional experience, Ralph has gained wide-ranging, career-long litigation experience by representing clients in a number of lawsuits involving patents, trademarks, and copyrights. More recently, he has defended a number of clients in lawsuits involving patent invalidity defenses that resulted in the asserted patents being subjected to administrative challenges in the form of post grant or inter partes reviews in the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
