Andrew Wichmann


I am a patent lawyer who enjoys the technical rigour of patent prosecution while also embracing the world of art and design. My clients have included startups and early stage companies as well as members of the Fortune 100. I have experience in a range of technical fields, including artificial neural networks, integrated circuits, FinTech, medical devices, wearables, and EdTech. The non-technical side of my practice includes the protection of designs and other creative works through the prosecution of design patents, trademark and trade dress rights, and copyright registrations.

I frequently counsel early stage companies emerging from universities and government research labs on IP licensing and patenting strategies. In the context of corporate M&A or IP acquisitions, I advise on the ownership, validity, scope, and enforceability of IP assets, as well as conduct freedom-to-operate analyses.
