Full-service outfit Stoel Rives has broad IP horizons and is stacked with rigorously trained technical experts (attorneys and patent agents) and courtroom heroes ready to enforce and defend clients’ hard-won rights. Across the contentious/non-contentious divide, the team keeps the focus on creating and protecting revenue-generating assets. Forming the backbone of the team in Salt Lake City, Matthew Bethards, Aaron Barker and Whitney Johnson express this commerciality in their strategy-oriented practices. A touchstone lawyer for medical device, life sciences and chemical concerns, Bethards prosecutes and manages portfolios worldwide, helping clients to accelerate, improve and take better advantage of their IP initiatives. Electrical engineer Barker achieves similar outcomes for his high-technology followers, which he furnishes with valuable additional support on licensing and litigious matters. Johnson, meanwhile, makes light work of software and computer science briefs and coordinates cross-border patent activities with a sure hand.
