A well-rounded litigator and meticulous researcher
An associate in the firm’s Houston office, Garrett S. Anderson supports clients with patent preparation and prosecution as well as trademark and brand protection, patent and criminal litigation, and dispute resolution. A dedicated, personable, and skilled strategist, Garrett tirelessly defends his clients’ intellectual property rights in highly technical sectors including biotechnology, medical devices, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and electronics.
Garrett’s scientific background as a biology major at Johns Hopkins University and law degree from Baylor Law School are built upon a lifetime of legal tutelage from his grandfather, who practiced law in New York for six decades. When other kids were reading children’s books before bed, Garrett’s grandfather read him court cases.
Garrett savors finding the needles in the haystack — the hidden counterpoints that earn his clients the results they need. His love of legal research bolsters his skills as a litigator and debater. Garrett sharpened his skills as an undergraduate where he served as a research assistant at the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics.
Today, Garrett is among an elite group of attorneys uniquely positioned to practice in both patent and criminal law.
A legacy of legal excellence and giving back
Garrett honed his skills in law school, serving as President of the Baylor Law Intellectual Property Society, Executive Editor of Baylor Law Review, and as an extern for Judge Alan Albright. He was the 2019 Dawson & Sodd Baylor Law Moot Court Competition champion, winning first place for his appellate advocacy. Garrett’s skills and dedication paved a path for him to continue serving as a judge for various Baylor Law Moot Court competitions throughout his tenure at the law school. Garrett was the top student in numerous law school classes, receiving high A’s in many of his classes, including Patent Law, Advanced Criminal Procedure, and Regulations of Healthcare Professionals.
Throughout his life, Garrett has consistently adopted a philosophy of philanthropy — another legacy passed down from his grandfather. While pursuing his biology degree, he served as president of the Hopkins Undergraduate Bioethics Society, and president of JHU GED Prep. Additionally, Garrett volunteered in JHU’s PILOT program where he tutored his fellow Hopkins students in organic chemistry and calculus. In law school, Garrett was awarded the distinction of Baylor Law School Public Interest Fellow “for his outstanding public service work performed while a student,” which included 255 pro bono hours dedicated to helping facilitate child adoptions. In all things, Garrett believes in using his knowledge and skills to contribute to causes greater than himself.
