US Patent Lawyer
Dan Hanson is a patent lawyer licensed to practice in the USA. He focusses primarily on the practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office. He has worked on patents involving a variety of technologies: medical, wireless, automotive, software, electrical, games, acoustic, camera, mechanical, to name a few. Although Dan does not litigate patent cases, he has litigation experience; one of his goals is to draft patents in a manner to make it less likely that it would be challenged or invalidated by future litigation.
