“Ben’s intellectual property experience, his work ethic, and commitment to client service make him an asset to our team,” said Danielle M. DeFilippis, Co-Chair of the Intellectual Property Law Practice Group.
“The culture and camaraderie at Norris McLaughlin are unparalleled, and I am happy to be a part of this exceptional team,” Schwartz said.
Schwartz concentrates his practice on enforcing intellectual property and contract rights, prosecuting trademark and copyright applications, participating in Trademark Trial and Appeal Board proceedings, and counseling clients on their protection and utilization of trademarks, patents, copyrights, and associated exclusive rights. He is a registered patent attorney with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and also has experience drafting license agreements with third-party users of famous trademarks to avoid genericide and loss of rights.
Prior to joining Norris McLaughlin, Schwartz worked as an associate for an intellectual property law firm in Silicon Valley, where he assisted with pre-trial procedure and conducted legal research.
Schwartz graduated from Santa Clara University School of Law with honors in intellectual property, and he received his B.S. in biology from Lehigh University. While attending law school, he served as president of the Student Intellectual Property Law Association and as a senior production editor of the High Technology Law Journal. Schwartz is licensed to practice in New York and California.
