Andrew J. Telesz, Jr.
Patent Agent / Washington, D.C. Metro Office
Andrew is a Patent Agent with over 23 years of experience in the semiconductor processing and devices and telecommunications industries. He leverages his significant experience to help clients build and protect strong patent portfolios.
Formerly a Patent Examiner at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), Andrew has the ability to look at a client’s patent application from both the perspective of an examiner and a drafter — and from there advise the client on the best course to ensure that the patent is enforceable.
Additionally, Andrew has experience managing and handling entire dockets, responding to USPTO actions, drafting amendments, and consulting with clients, all of which add tremendous value to clients’ products and IP portfolios.
When Andrew isn’t busy in the world of intellectual property, he enjoys traveling, hiking, golfing, and spending time with his wife, dog, and two sons — one of whom lives in Scotland and works in theater art, the other of whom lives stateside and is a morning radio program producer.
