Offering inventors IP guidance with electrical engineering experience
Aaron Leiter is a patent prosecutor with experience in electronics, semiconductor and communication technologies. Before joining Patterson + Sheridan, Aaron worked with a large telecommunications company where he received an Ideation Award for process improvements he developed for circuit provisioning and network design. His familiarity with telecommunications technology — from wireless transmissions to network topology — now informs his patent application writing process and helps him defend his clients’ intellectual property.
As an electrical engineering student Aaron worked designing and developing electronics and semiconductor devices related to integrated circuit (IC) fabrication, plasma and vacuum technologies, and radio frequency. His engineering background gives him a framework for better understanding the patentability of cutting-edge technologies and expedites the research process, saving his clients time and resources. He loves the challenge of articulating a complex legal idea or technical concept in a simple way. When it comes to practicing law, Aaron strives to remain approachable in both his writing and his demeanor with clients.
Motivated by an insatiable curiosity
Aaron doesn’t believe in resting on one’s laurels. While pursuing his law degree at Texas A&M University, he worked full-time as an engineer and still completed twice the amount of courses required to obtain his intellectual property concentration. He also handled invention disclosures for the Texas A&M University Innovation Partners. While there, he was exposed to a vast array of new technologies and helped draft licensing agreements — further cementing his passion for IP law.
Like any good inventor, Aaron is endlessly curious. When he is not at work he enjoys a great number of hobbies. In fact, he likes to say his favorite hobby is acquiring more hobbies. Aaron has designed and built his own 3D printer as well as several Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines, and he has a penchant for taking cars apart to modify them. He enjoys travel, even by unique means (he’s ridden a jet ski from Florida to the Bahamas three times), and has been to 36 U.S. states and 20 countries.
