He also assists clients with prosecution of patent applications and post-grant proceedings in the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Caleb’s focus is on developing and executing worldwide patent and trademark protection strategies.
A native of Indiana, Caleb attended Purdue University – earning a B.S. in Electrical Engineering – before earning his J.D. from Indiana University Maurer School of Law. Caleb credits his time at both Purdue and Indiana University with the success he has found today: “At Purdue, I learned about engineering problems of the future and approaches to solving those problems. At Indiana, I learned about protecting innovations through the patent system, including both patent litigation and prosecution. Today I work at Knobbe Martens with other highly-educated attorneys, scientists, and engineers in every technical area. None of this would have been possible without my experiences at both IU and Purdue.”
Caleb is a member of the California bar and a registered patent attorney with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. During his time at Maurer, Caleb served as President of the Intellectual Property Association and was an extern at the Naval Research Warfare Center, Crane Division.
