Leon Radomsky focuses on strategic IP counseling and IP strategy, IP due diligence, agreements and opinions, and all phases of U.S. and international patent portfolio development, including patent application drafting and patent prosecution in the areas of nanotechnology, clean technology (such as solar cells, fuel cells and energy storage devices), semiconductor devices and processing, and materials science. Mr. Radomsky represents a number of high profile early and middle stage VC funded nanotech and cleantech companies and leading VC funds in the nanotech and cleantech space.
Prior to joining The Marbury Law Group, Mr. Radomsky was a partner at Foley & Lardner LLP, one of the largest law firms in the country. While at Foley, Mr. Radomsky was the founding member and chair of Foley’s Nanotechnology Industry Team and a founding member of Foley’s Green Energy Technologies IP group. He drafted and prosecuted a large number of key patents in the nanotech, cleantech, semiconductor and materials science areas, developed and implemented an IP strategy for a number of start-up companies, and counseled a number of VC funds and target companies in a course of IP due diligence during VC investment.
Prior to joining Foley, Mr. Radomsky worked as a patent examiner in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, where he examined patent applications in semiconductor device processing and developed a broad knowledge of semiconductor device processing, solar cell, light emitting diode and liquid crystal display fabrication technologies. Prior to that, he was a doctoral research assistant and teaching assistant at Columbia University, where he gained expertise in wide band gap semiconductor physics and testing, metallurgy and opto-electronic materials processing.
Mr. Radomsky was recognized in the Legal 500 US 2009 Edition and in the Legal 500 US: Volume II: Intellectual Property, Media, Technology, and Telecom 2007 Guide as a top attorney for patent prosecution.
