Michael - Patent, Trademark, and Copyright Attorney, Partner

Fishman Stewart PLLC

YOUR IP BUSINESS PARTNER



My role as your IP Business Partner is to help you turn your intellectual property into intellectual capital.  I work with all aspects of the procurement, management, and enforcement of worldwide intellectual property (IP) rights and can help your business generate value from its IP.



THERE’S IP IN EVERYTHING WE DO ® 



From entrepreneurship to authorship, ownership, relationships, and inventorship, you have IP that’s worth protecting.  That’s where I come in.  



Partnering with clients of all sizes, from solo practitioners and startups to Fortune 500 companies, I procure, defend, and enforce IP rights and resolve IP disputes in a variety of industries, including healthcare, engineering, media, real estate, banking, technology, and manufacturing, among others. 



I have partnered with clients to protect a variety of technologies, such as aerospace components, medical devices, automotive seating, electronics, electrical sensor and safety systems, superchargers, differentials, fueling systems, plastic containers, automotive interior components, engine controllers, engine testing equipment, digital shearography and image processing, manufacturing equipment, aluminum fencing, cellular communications, and software, just to name a few. 



WATCH OUT FOR IP IN M&A



IP can sometimes become an afterthought in corporate transactions.  As your IP Business Partner, I can help efficiently and effectively navigate the unique issues presented when transferring or modifying ownership of rights in IP assets.



DEDICATED TO IP



Prior to joining Fishman Stewart, I was an associate in the intellectual property group of a general practice AmLaw 200 law firm.  As part of a general practice firm, I gained incredible experience and insight into a wide range of industries and legal issues.  Now practicing at an IP boutique, I leverage that experience with the efficiencies of a firm completely dedicated to the unique challenges and opportunities of IP.



I enjoy being part of the IP community and was on the executive board of the Michigan Intellectual Property Law Association (MIPLA) for several year.  I have also been an active member of the Michigan IP Inn of Court since 2015.



IP EDUCATION



I received a B.S.E. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan, with minors in Mathematics and Economics. I worked for several years as a manufacturing intern and an electrical engineering intern while completing my degree. 



I attended law school at DePaul University in Chicago, which has been ranked as one of the top law schools for IP in the country.  While in law school, I focused on IP, earning a certificate in patent law and working in DePaul’s Technology and Intellectual Property Law Clinic. In addition, my team and I won the National Intellectual Property Transactional LawMeet and received the award for best term sheet.



BUSINESS EDUCATION



In additional to Minors in Mathematics (largely focused on finance) and Economics, I furthered my business education to better understand the perspectives and needs of my clients at DePaul’s Kellstadt Graduate School of Business, earning an MBA with distinction and a concentration in Finance.



WORLD CLASS QUALITY, MIDWEST VALUE ®



We provide world class service with Midwest value, so whether you’re looking to start an IP program or take your current program to the next level, I look forward to working with you!
