Andrew J. Freyer has an insider’s knowledge of technology companies’ business objectives and applies it to his work on patent preparation and prosecution as well as licensing agreements. His work ensures clients realize the full value of their intellectual property rights.

After working in the legal department at Apple, assisting with portfolio management and generating analytic frameworks for objectively evaluating the quality and health of patent portfolios, patent families, and patent service providers, Andrew understands the software and hardware technology industries inside and out. His deep familiarity with the business objectives of large-scale technology clients allows him to draft and design patent applications specifically keyed to those objectives.

With experience in drafting strategy for international patent rights enforcement, conducting investigations into avoidable issuance delays in foreign jurisdictions, and providing detailed statistical analysis of patent portfolio development, Andrew also advises clients on patent portfolio development techniques that parallel clients’ business growth objectives.
