Patent Preparation and Prosecution

Patent Counseling

Patent Litigation Support 


Ross’s practice focuses on preparation and prosecution of patent applications, principally involving electrical and mechanical technologies. He has nearly two decades of experience practicing patent law.   

Ross has extensive experience protecting intellectual property relating to networking, computer systems, semiconductor devices, computer peripherals, imaging systems, communications systems, medical equipment, aerospace technologies, and industrial designs.  

As a technologist, Ross is active in pursuits aside from practicing patent law. Ross uses decades of study and hobby activities in the electrical engineering and computer science disciplines to work effectively with even the most technologically sophisticated inventors to maximize value for his clients. His hobby pursuits have been a life-long passion. Ross made his own interface boards for his Apple II computer as a teenager, studied electrical engineering and computer science at M.I.T., had off-lab involvement with technical activities at NASA JPL while living in Los Angeles, designed and built his own amateur radio equipment from kilohertz to gigahertz ranges, and, in Spring 2012, successfully completed a Coursera online cryptography course taught by Stanford University professor Dan Boneh.   

Prior to joining Larson Newman, Ross practiced at law firms ranging from his own solo practice and a small West Los Angeles patent boutique firm serving a wide range of well-known technology pioneers to the Los Angeles office of a large New-York-based intellectual property firm. Such a breadth of experience serving a diverse range of clients has given Ross a focus on the particular needs of his clients and the ability to fine-tune a wide range of possible intellectual property solutions to meet those particular needs.
