I have written a number of articles regarding patent prosecution and litigation, describing legal developments in the areas of electronics, software, medical equipment and devices, and pharmaceutical and eyewear products. I have also written an article on Russian/American litigation that was published by the Eastern Europe Reporter of The Bureau of National Affairs, Inc., U.S.A. You can see the links to these articles below. Please also look at my Blog for legal news and updates.
