KENNETH M. LESCH

Ken's practice includes the preparation and prosecution of patent applications before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, infringement/ non-infringement opinions, and validity/invalidity opinions. His practice focuses on the technical areas of analog circuits, communications, electro-mechanical dynamics, and software.

Ken draws on his litigation experience to prepare and prosecute patents with an eye towards enforcement. Before joining Snyder, Clark, Lesch & Chung, he was an attorney with the intellectual property law firm of Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner, where he was a member of two trial teams litigating patents before the International Trade Commission. He has also litigated patents before Federal District Courts. Ken also gained extensive patent preparation and prosecution experience at Finnegan and at Harrity Snyder, LLP. While in law school, he interned for the Honorable Randall R. Rader at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

Before beginning his legal career, Ken gained three years of engineering experience working for Lockheed Martin, in addition to serving internships there and at IBM. While at Lockheed, he modeled and simulated engagement algorithms for a missile defense project and designed analog test circuits for manufacturing quality control.
