Professionals

PATENT ATTORNEYS

Principal attorney Willy Wong is registered to practice in California and registered to practice before the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO).  He regularly assists clients with U.S. and foreign patent prosecution, patent novelty / validity / infringement opinions, and technology licensing matters. He has represented clients in various matters in state and federal courts, as well as at administrative hearings.

While attending UC Hastings College of the Law, Willy began his training as a law clerk at Wilshire Palisades Law Group in Santa Monica and at Ord & Norman in San Francisco.  Shortly after being admitted to the California bar, he began working as a patent attorney at the prestigious Trojan Law Offices in Beverly Hills.  After taking on Fortune 500 companies at Trojan Law Offices, Willy decided to establish his own law practice with a select team of top law school graduates.

When he is taking breaks between USPTO filings, Willy checks the latest scores on his fantasy sports teams.  On the weekends, you can find him at a local blacktop where he tries to emulate (however poorly) his favorite basketball stars.
