Joshua Randall


222 South Main Street, Suite 2200, Salt Lake City, UT 84101

Josh provides strategic intellectual property services to a range of clients from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies. He has a broad spectrum of patent prosecution-related experience in the mechanical, electro-mechanical, electrical, and biomedical arts, with a particular focus on the aerospace, life sciences, and outdoor recreation industries.

His experience includes preparing and prosecuting utility and design patent applications, managing U.S. and foreign patent portfolios, and conducting due diligence investigations, patentability and freedom to operate opinions, inter partes reviews (IPRs), and reexamination proceedings.

Josh has worked on thousands of patent applications covering numerous technologies. The companies and individuals he works with regularly applaud his responsiveness, candid advice, and collegiality. For Josh, every day is an opportunity to help companies and individuals turn their intellectual assets into financial returns, greater market share, and increased valuation for their owners.

Josh recently has been building a suite of services for small to medium sized companies, particularly those that do not have in-house IP counsel. These services include development of IP policies, procedures, and strategies, formation of effective IP decision-making committees, inventor incentive programs, and IP education/training programs, conducting competitive landscaping and worldwide IP mapping, and establishing portfolio licensing strategies.

Prior to joining the firm, Josh was an IP attorney for a national IP boutique, and a design engineer for 3Com, Inc.
