Michael V. Pack, Ph.D., represents a broad range of clients, prosecuting patent applications for U.S. and foreign corporations in many fields, including, machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI), computer vision and image/signal processing, photonics, telecommunications (wireless and optical), medical imaging, remote sensing, cryptography, computers (software and hardware), internet-of-things (IoT), cloud computing, wearable technology, smart devices, and business methods.

Dr. Pack has prosecuted hundreds of patents and enjoys the challenge of developing new strategies to stay in front of the ever-changing patent landscape. For example, he regularly counsels clients regarding strategies to address the evolving “abstract idea” standard.

Prior to joining the firm, Dr. Pack performed research as a Physicist at U.S. nuclear weapons lab, working on subjects ranging from quantum information to remote sensing to radiation hardened laser components/devices.  The broad range of interest from his research career has uniquely equipped Dr. Pack to quickly discern and explain the key technical points at the heart of given matter, and to incisively grasp which technical arguments best bolster/support the client’s legal position.
