He arduously analyses every word for accuracy with a fanatical focus on producing the most thorough document possible in a timely manner.” A named inventor on 25 issued US patents, Srini Chakravarthi is brilliant at working with technical professionals to implement smart and creative patent protection. He has been working closely with Matsil to support STMicroelectronics, a patron of more than two decades, draft and prosecute patent applications across the world.

Also working on this matter is Michael Kucher, who brings a unique edge to his practice as a registered patent attorney in Germany. European entities flock to Kucher for his in-depth international insight and wonderfully well-rounded patent expertise.
