What Others Have Said About Our PTAB Work

"Thank you for the great work that you’ve done for Edwards. I appreciate the value of the rare patent attorney that drills deep into issues and really understands the details. You’re a rare 1 percenter. Attorneys like you make a real-world difference when it matters most." David Hauser, Senior Patent Counsel, Edwards Lifesciences

"I can't make a stronger recommendation for counsel in litigation proceedings before the USPTO. I would bet they are just as good in Federal Court as well, but candidly, we have no experience with them in that. Nevertheless, I wouldn't hesitate a second to engage them if we needed representation in court, or for any patent issue for that matter." James T. Ayers, Jr., CEO Tezzaron Semiconductor Corporation.

"Rick, I want to compliment you on a job very well done yesterday. You were prepared and thorough. Honestly, I felt sorry for [the expert witness]." Michael Scalise, Executive Director, Intellectual Property Mgt. Greatbatch, Inc.

"[Rick is an] Outstanding Depo. Was fun to watch you at work. Your calm and easy going manner got him to keep talking even as he sensed he was being discredited in the extreme. Impressive performance." Robert Stevenson, Senior Scientist, Greatbatch, Inc.

“Thank you very much – great job!" Alexander Poltorak, Chairman & CEO, General Patent Corporation.

“Thank you so very much for your excellent work.” Uri Cohen, Ph.D.

"Thank you for your invaluable assistance. Always timely. Always helpful." John Nathan, Partner, Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP.

"I appreciate your updates, and particularly these re the PTAB. And I would greatly appreciate a copy of your draft article. Could you please keep me in mind for future updates/info you gather/analysis re PTAB practice?" Professor Lisa A. Dolak, Director, Institute for the Study of the Judiciary, Politics, and the Media at Syracuse University.

"Rick Neifeld is a bright, innovative patent attorney with offices close to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. We attended law school together at George Washington University. Since graduation, Rick has done it all ... worked at a large patent law firm, started his own law firm and been a leader in the patent and interference bar. We have not worked together, but I admire and respect his work ethic and creativity." Janelle Waack, Novak Druce.

"Rick is a great patent attorney with depth of knowledge in the subject matter and a keen sense of judgment and creativity in analyzing and solving a problem. He has great people skills and strong work ethics. It was a pleasure to work with Rick." Shriram Bagrodia, Ph.D.

"Rick is a well known member of the patent interference bar and he is Maier & Maier's go to guy for any complex patent or interference law questions." Tim Maier, Esq., Maier & Maier, PLLC.
