About Richard P. Bauer

Richard Bauer advises clients on monetizing patent portfolios, including licensing, due diligence, joint ventures, and mergers and acquisitions.

Patent prosecution support with deep USPTO experience

Richard spends significant time at the USPTO interviewing examiners and consulting with management to better facilitate and expedite patent applications. This relationship with the USPTO enables him to research and revive abandoned applications, lapsed patents and lost files. His clients' technologies include telecommunications, smartphones, software, apps and other electrical technologies, with additional focus on radio frequency communication devices, integrated circuits, business methods, satellite communications and optical waveguides.

After serving a tour of duty in the US Army, Richard began his career as a mechanical engineer at Ingersoll-Rand. He then worked as an electrical engineer for Hughes Aircraft Company, where he earned his private pilot's license and was a systems and design engineer for the radar data processor of the F-15 radar system. After working at E-Systems, where he handled classified communications programs for the US government, he became an attorney, focusing his practice on patent litigation and prosecution.

A frequent presenter on patent matters, Richard speaks to organizations such as the American Intellectual Property Law Association and numerous Canadian patent bar groups. He lectures on recent court decisions, the America Invents Act, new USPTO rules and guidelines, and current best practices for in-house patent lawyers.
