Michael V. Young practices patent law with an emphasis on patent portfolio management, client counseling, U.S. district court litigation, and post-grant proceedings at the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). He also represents clients in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in cases stemming from court actions and post-grant proceedings, including those involving issues of first impression.
Michael has worked on dozens of inter partes review (IPR) and covered business method (CBM) post-grant review (PGR) proceedings, including the very first CBM review proceeding filed, argued, and decided. He develops offensive and defensive strategies for multiple, related proceedings; prepares and manages the preparation of written submissions; takes and defends technical expert depositions; and argues discovery and substantive issues.
Michael organizes and manages several large domestic and foreign patent portfolios. He has drafted or overseen the drafting of hundreds of patent applications, as well as their subsequent prosecution. He counsels clients from product development through patenting and patent assertion. He managed the preparation and prosecution of more than 200 patent applications as part of a strategic growth project to build a client patent portfolio having defensive and monetization value.
Michael’s district court experience includes every phase of litigation from filing of the complaint to trial. He prepares non-infringement and invalidity positions, manages fact discovery, works with fact and expert witnesses, drafts substantive briefings, conducts trial witness preparations, and takes depositions.
Michael concentrates his practice primarily on computer-related technologies and has built significant experience in lighter-than-air (LTA) and hybrid airship technologies. Prior to joining Finnegan, he worked on the design of integrated circuits and testing software for printing devices, cash acceptance systems, and other component devices of automated teller machines.
