Chad Eimers is a registered patent attorney who focuses on preparation and prosecution of patent applications, both domestically and foreign. Chad has written nearly 200 patent applications, and his experience in patent preparation and prosecution include consumer electronic devices (hardware and software), accessory devices for consumer electronic devices, athletic apparel, and business methods. He has also performed prior art searches specific to preparation for inter partes review and other challenges to patent validity.
Chad began his patent prosecution career a patent examiner at the USPTO. During this time, Chad not only learned the inner workings of the USPTO, but also the skills and habits of highly experienced patent attorneys. Currently, Chad leverages his own patent examiner experience when working with current patent examiners to procure allowable claims. For example, Chad has performed several examiner interviews – telephonic and in-person (at the USPTO) – and his comfort level working with former colleagues (patent examiners) is greatly enhanced based upon his own time as a patent examiner.
In addition to his mechanical background, Chad has nearly completed his electrical engineering degree, where he focused on communications. This additional technical aptitude provides Chad with a broader ability to understand and digest technical information.
When Chad is not working, he enjoys spending time with his family at the beach and volunteering at a local animal shelter.
