Houston IP attorney experienced in oil and gas technologies and mechanical engineering
Josh is an intellectual property strategist who helps clients protect oilfield technologies and other mechanical and electromechanical applications. He’s quick to drill down into an invention and learn it inside and out in order to prosecute patents effectively.
As a summer associate at Patterson + Sheridan, Josh drafted patent applications and filed takedown notices to protect clients’ trademark rights. He focused on downhole systems and fracking technologies, and worked alongside the firm’s litigation attorneys to draft infringement contentions and claim charts as well.
Josh graduated from the University of Houston Law Center and studied mechanical engineering at Texas A&M University. As an undergraduate, he was a project management intern overseeing two high-purity gas construction projects for NASA and a Fortune 500 client. He also interned with the Dell OEM Engineering Team, completing in-depth thermal airflow analysis on the company’s 14th Generation Enterprise Servers.
Leveraging a love for law and science to score clients’ goals
An Austin native, Josh grew up in the shadow of the Texas State Capitol and has always taken an interest in politics and legal issues. Between undergrad and law school, he served as Assistant Sergeant-at-Arms for the Texas State Senate during the 85th Texas legislature and special session. Today, his IP practice bridges his passions for engineering, technology and the law.
Josh was a member of the Texas A&M men’s club soccer team, and he enjoys playing on the weekends with friends and family. During the English football season, you can likely find him watching a soccer game or exploring Houston’s local eateries.
