Taylor is a registered patent attorney whose practice focuses primarily on securing domestic and foreign patent rights. With two degrees in electrical engineering, Taylor has helped protect inventions for high-tech clients in a range of industries, include semiconductor fabrication, computer-networking hardware and virtualization, and consumer-facing software. With a background in MEMS technologies, Taylor has also worked on integrated electrical/mechanical systems in medical sensors and devices.
Prior to entering legal practice, Taylor worked as a research assistant and a teaching assistant at the University of Utah and also interned in the CMOS image sensor group of Micron Technology, Inc. before it was spun out to form Aptina Imaging Corporation. Additionally, during his engineering education at the University of Utah, Taylor help to co-found a University spin-off. While the start-up “failed fast,” that experience and others have provided Taylor with the lens to view intellectual property consistently within the business needs of companies small and large. Taylor is also a patented inventor himself, being a co-inventor of U.S. Pat. No. 8,421,305 for “MEMS Devices and Systems Actuated by an Energy Field.”
Eager to help current students and faculty navigate the waters of Intellectual Property, Taylor regularly guest lectures and presents to groups at the University of Texas at Dallas.
Taylor is admitted to practice in California, Texas, and before the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
