          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.

          Raymond R. Ricordati, III: With more than 12 years as a patent attorney, Ray has extensive experience with clients in a variety of technologies across many industries, including computer hardware and software, mechanical, electro-mechanical, electronic and biotechnical. He works closely with in-house counsel and managers, invention review committees and inventors to evaluate new innovations and to develop and implement U.S. and worldwide patent strategies. From taking and analyzing the invention disclosure through preparation of the patent application, Ray’s focus is on the quality of the patent application to withstand U.S. and international examination, post-grant review or enforcement.
