Profile

Greg Webb concentrates his practice in the area of intellectual property law. In particular, he advises clients on business issues involving intellectual property rights.

A focus of Greg’s practice is procuring and strategically enforcing patent rights for clients with domestic and international portfolios. He has prepared and prosecuted patent applications in a variety of technological fields, including diagnostic imaging systems, medical devices, medical simulators, telecommunications, nanotechnology, semiconductor manufacturing and processing, computer networking, software and well logging.

In addition to procurement and enforcement of patent rights, Greg helps clients design and develop products that avoid infringement of competitor patents. He also drafts agreements and evaluates intellectual property assets in the context of mergers, acquisitions, research and development agreements and licensing agreements.

Selected Client Representations

Greg represented a patent owner in filing a complaint for patent infringement with the International Trade Commission (ITC). The asserted patents included a patent that Greg obtained allowance for at the USPTO. In response to the complaint, the ITC issued an exclusion order preventing importation of the infringing products into the U.S.

While a jury verdict that determined that the defendant infringed three patents was on appeal to the Federal Circuit, the USPTO issued Office Actions in Ex Parte Reexaminations of the three patents that rejected the claims that were found to be infringed. Greg drafted responses to Office Actions on behalf of the patent owner that overcame the rejections and resulted in confirmation of all of the infringed claims for all three patents.
