Attorney, Husch Blackwell

Bob is an attorney that counsels clients in a wide range of intellectual property matters. I assist clients in obtaining and securing United States and international intellectual property rights through patent prosecution, trademark prosecution and applying for copyright registrations. I also assist clients in managing their intellectual property holdings, as well as maintaining and enforcing their rights. As part of this management, I also draft many intellectual property-related agreements for clients, including, patent, copyright and trademark licenses and assignments.

I co-lead our firm’s Internet of Things group and am active in emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things, blockchain, and smart contracts. A significant portion of my practice is dedicated to counseling clients regarding technology acquisition and the ins-and-outs of web and mobile-based commerce. As part of his activities in these areas, Bob regularly drafts and negotiates software licenses, software and mobile application development agreements, data sharing and management agreements, hosting agreements for cloud storage solutions, Software as a Service agreements, hardware purchase agreements, technology transfer agreements, and website terms of use and privacy policies. I also counsel e-commerce clients on privacy issues related to the collection and use of information collected through their e-commerce platforms and have been assisting clients with GDPR compliance strategies.
