Pleasanton Law Firm Adds Intellectual Property Expertise With New Patent Attorney

(IT-NEWSWIRE.COM, March 08, 2017 ) Oakland, CA -- JGPC Business & Corporate Law has expanded the law firm’s expertise to support and protect its entrepreneurs and tech firms with the addition of experienced patent and intellectual property attorney Gerald R. Prettyman.

Intellectual property has become an increasingly complex and vital field in today’s knowledge-based economy. “Jerry’s expertise and leadership in the important area of patents, trademarks, trade names, copyrights and other intellectual property areas adds valued expertise to our law firm,” said Jim Gulseth, Principle and Founder of JGPC.

“He is very skilled at defending valuable ideas, which are often the most critical assets of a competitive business,” Gulseth said.

Prettyman’s areas of practice at JGPC covers multiple categories of intellectual property:

• Invention protection with utility patents and trade secrets

• Business and brand protection with trademarks and trade dress

• Copyrights for artwork and industrial design

• Protection, fair use and file sharing of art and music

• Cease and desist letters

• IP sale agreements including patents, trademarks and internet domains.

Prettyman prepared for his intellectual property specialty with a diversified technical career. After his U.S. Navy service as a Corpsman, he worked as a nuclear engineer with the U.S. Navy, then managed quality engineering departments, finally moving into patent and intellectual property law and licensing.

He has worked with clients in the software, solar applications, electronics, medical and bio-medical, and design fields to safeguard their inventions from intellectual property theft. He also assists entrepreneurs with start-up services and advises businesses on effectively using the internet to boost sales

Prettyman graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering from U. C. San Diego and earned his J.D. and a Master of Laws in Intellectual Property from Golden Gate University. He has been preparing and prosecuting patents since 2001.

He is a USPTO registered Patent Attorney and licensed in California and Minnesota. In addition to his U.S. work, he co-represents clients throughout the world, including Europe, Australia, China, Japan, and India.

Prettyman is married and lives in Pleasanton.
