Allen F. Bennett has been helping entrepreneurs and innovative companies protect their intellectual property since 2001. His clients have ranged from multi-million dollar companies, major universities and research institutions to small businesses and individual entrepreneurs. Mr. Bennett has procured hundreds of patents in a wide variety of technical fields, including electronics, mechanical devices, software, chemistry, medical equipment, pharmaceuticals, and nutritional supplements. He has similarly obtained hundreds of trademarks for clients seeking to protect their unique trademarks.
In addition to registering patents, trademarks and copyrights, Mr. Bennett enforces them, through litigation when necessary. He also counsels clients on patent and trademark portfolio management, strategies for effective registration and licensing, infringement opinions, and freedom-to-operate studies, and how to amicably resolve disputes without resorting to litigation.
Prior to law school, Mr. Bennett graduated cum laude from the University of Arkansas with a B.S. in Biochemistry and a minor in mathematics. He had a successful career as a scientist, working in research laboratories studying mycology, pathogenesis, genetics, and proteomics. Allen Bennett is a published scientist, having and co-authored an article in the prestigious science journal Biochemistry.
Upon completing law school in 2001, Mr. Bennett worked at both IP boutique and general litigation law firms. He has also served as in-house patent counsel for a small start-up company developing cutting edge gene therapy techniques. These experiences give him the ability to evaluate your innovations and your needs from legal, technical and business perspectives. “I don’t tell clients whether or not we can protect their intellectual property, I find ways to get them the protection they need.”
