Patterson Firm Gains Strength in Electronics and Computer Technology

Thursday, July 17, 2008

Minneapolis, MN -- Intellectual property law firm Patterson, Thuente, Skaar & Christensen continues its growth path with the addition of Robert E. Ray as an associate attorney. A former senior design engineer with LSI Logic—an industry leading electronics company with more than 10,000 patents covering storage, networking and consumer markets—Robert Ray has extensive technical expertise to employ when working with client’s technology. His experience covers technologies relating to Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASIC), mixed-signal integration, high-speed data-transfer timing, digital signal processing and optics. Utilizing that experience, Ray will focus his practice on patent prosecution for clients in the computer hardware and software, electrical, mechanical and optical fields.

Ray is a graduate of William Mitchell College of Law, as well as the Patterson, Thuente, Skaar & Christensen Law Clerk Mentoring Program, the firm’s quasi-apprenticeship opportunity for law school students. During his last years of law school, he gained valuable experience and exposure to IP law by conducting legal research, drafting client communications, patent applications and office action responses, and providing litigation support under the supervision of the firm’s senior attorneys.
