BRUCE HARE - President, Patent Attorney
Bruce received a BS EE from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and then worked as an engineer in the semiconductor industry for 15 years before attaining his JD from USD School of Law and becoming a USPTO registered patent attorney.
As an inventor and patent attorney, Bruce has extensive experience with a broad range of subject matter including manufacturing, electronics, circuit design and analysis, communication systems, software, mechanical components, and medical treatments and protocols.
“My years of experience in manufacturing gave me insight into the processes and work flows that my clients are facing. I was able to develop a unique set of skills that involve taking ideas from concept to physical design to production, including testing and refining products and processes to achieve the best results possible. That understanding of the entire process allows me to think through patent related issues and offer additional value to clients. In order to optimize manufacturing processes I created new software, which involved writing a lot of code and designing both machine and software interfaces. So, when clients come to me wanting to patent products, processes, software, even medical treatments and protocols those are fields where I have a lot of experience. That experience allows me to quickly understand both the big picture and the minute details of the concept and create a patent application that accurately and thoroughly describes the invention appropriately for a patent filing while maintaining the flexibility to claim and protect the broadest possible subject matter.”
