He is involved in firm management, including serving on the firm board and constantly tinkering with and systematising firm processes. Mr Arora also serves on a number of other boards, including at Mitchell Hamline School of Law.

Mr Arora’s IP experience spans a wide range of complex technologies, including semiconductor devices, circuits, packages and systems; orthopedic, opthalmic, implantable, endoscopic, interventional and other medical devices; imaging and radiation treatment; software, signal processing and artificial intelligence; LIDAR, hyperspectral imaging and other optical systems; and access control, robotics, mechanical devices and consumer products.

Mr Arora has authored numerous articles and spoken on a wide range of IP-related subjects, including opinions for business transactions, freedom-to-operate analysis and interplay between patent law and Food and Drug Administration law. He enjoys mentoring attorneys and law students.
