Henry develops creative patent licensing and enforcement strategies for startups, middle-market companies, multinational corporations, universities, and research hospitals.

He has represented clients as first-chair counsel in post-grant disputes and high-stakes litigation involving physics, optics, electrical engineering, and precision electromechanical systems patents. He has handled cases before the U.S. Patent Trial Appeal Board (PTAB), the International Trade Commission (ITC), and the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.

Henry has managed portfolios covering conductor, nanotechnology, energy production, photonics, optical device, imaging system, medical imaging, drug delivery, medical robot, and smart surgical tool patents.

He performs intellectual property audits and patent-clearance studies for proposed new products, and structures approaches to help his clients enforce their patent rights and avoid infringement issues. Henry also prepares non-infringement and invalidity opinions with respect to competitors’ patents.

Henry formerly conducted research at England’s Daresbury Laboratory, while using the institution’s heavy-ion accelerators, synchrotron radiation sources, and supercomputer facilities. He also conducted electron and heavy-ion-scattering experiments at the University of Oxford, Yale University, University of Paris-Saclay, and University of Milan.

He was a scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT) Lincoln Laboratory, where he conducted studies funded by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD), Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

His research included technology related to a vast range of sensors and systems, including radar systems, radio frequency, infrared and optical-detection systems, avionics and signal-processing algorithms and techniques.

Henry also taught a wide range of physics courses, including advanced laboratory courses for upper-level undergraduates and first- and second-year graduate students. He was responsible for teaching advanced laboratory courses with a professor who was nominated for the Nobel Prize for the discovery of buckminsterfullerene, which played an important role in igniting interest in nanotechnology.
