An IP attorney with broad technical and legal experience

Mitchel Jones brings over fifteen years of experience counseling clients across a wide range of technical disciplines. His intellectual property law practice focuses on patent preparation and prosecution as well as preparing FTO, invalidity, and non-infringement opinions in the fields of electronics and semiconductor technologies, artificial intelligence and machine learning applications, medical devices, and complex software and information technology.

Mitchel returned to Patterson + Sheridan after serving as a founding partner of an intellectual property firm in California, where he managed a team of attorneys and patent agents in representing clients ranging from large Fortune 500 companies to smaller start-ups. Mitchel’s deep interest in technology has enabled him to support clients in a broad range of cutting-edge fields, including 3D computer graphics, artificial intelligence, processor architectures, complex software, virtual reality, computer networking, and semiconductor processing.

Additionally, Mitchel previously served as in-house patent counsel for a San Francisco-based technology company, where he managed the company’s global patent portfolio and worked closely with various business units to advise on FTO and landscape analyses. This exposure gave Mitchel a better understanding of the day-to-day challenges of in-house counsel, and he leverages this firsthand knowledge to better serve inventors and in-house counsel alike.
