I’m thrilled to announce that Brent Clothier has joined Henry Patent Law Firm as a patent agent. 

Brent joins us from an elite general-practice law firm, where he managed global patent portfolios for Fortune 100 tech companies and other high-tech clients. 

In addition to his experience as a patent professional, Brent has amazing technical chops. Before starting his career in patent law, Brent was a project manager and lead engineer at GE Global Research, where he led research and development efforts for commercial-grade chemical and materials processes. 

Brent holds a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Texas at Austin and a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. 

Brent’s diverse technical background and research experience allow him to quickly understand a wide range of technologies, no matter how complex. He’s already jumped in and added significant value for our clients. 

I’m excited to have another colleague who shares my enthusiasm for serving clients who are doing cutting-edge scientific research. Join me in welcoming another talented professional to our team. 

Welcome, Brent!
