Warren M. Pate
Registered Patent Attorney
I have over thirteen years experience in practicing patent and trademark law. My employment in the legal services field began more than seventeen years ago. Early on, I worked as a technical consultant and writer for a patent boutique. After admission to the Utah State Bar, I spent the next four years with the same patent boutique, working as a registered patent attorney. In 2008, I started my own firm where I apply my training and experience to provide high quality output and personalized service at a reasonable cost.
My training and experience as a lawyer and as a mechanical engineer have enabled me to prosecute patents in the mechanical and electro-mechanical arts.
I am a system builder at heart and thoroughly enjoy the challenge of creating efficient systems and processes. I am always looking to perfect the internal systems and processes of my legal practice in order to more efficiently deliver quality legal services at a reasonable cost.
Before working in the legal field, I was employed at Utah State University's Space Dynamics Laboratory (SDL) where I generated computer models to predict thermal performance. I performed thermal conductivity analysis used to design conductive heat sinks for cooling the circuit boards of the Advanced Reconnaissance Compression Hardware (ARCH) project. I also assisted in fabricating and installing radiation shielding for the SABER instrument (an earth orbiting infrared instrument launched in December 2001).
While pursuing my undergraduate studies, I was employed as a machinist, working with computer numerically controlled (CNC) equipment to produce custom plastic injection molds. Through this work I gained experience in metal working, mold making, and injection molding using ABS, polystyrene, and polyethylene.
