Woodcock Washburn helps some of the most innovative companies in the world protect their intellectual property in virtually all areas of electrical engineering, including telecommunications, power distribution and internet systems.
Electrical and electronic engineering have provided world-changing innovations, from early inventions such as the telegraph, lights, telephone, radio, and television to integrated circuitry and other recently developed complex electronics. Woodcock Washburn is proud of its place in the development of early electronic devices. One of our early partners, Lawrence Phelan, counseled Vladimir Zworkin, the father of color television. And our founding partner, Robert Washburn, prepared two of the earliest patents on holography. These patents were each named Patent of the Year.
Our firm has many attorneys educated and experienced in electrical engineering, systems engineering, physics, and other science and technology fields. In addition, many have previously worked as in-house counsel for innovative companies such as RCA, Motorola, BellSouth, AT&T Mobility and Microsoft, to name a few. This unique business savvy allows us to provide highly-specialized electrical engineering services, fitting the right attorney to the task.
Woodcock Washburn provides a broad array of services to its clients in the electrical engineering field. We counsel clients on strategic use of intellectual property.
