Perkins Coie is pleased to announce that Michael A. Glenn has joined the firm’s Palo Alto office as a partner in the firm’s Intellectual Property practice.

Prior to GPG, Glenn held various senior in-house positions at Intel Corporation, National Semiconductor, and Digital Equipment Corporation.

“Michael is an outstanding patent attorney,” said Chris Kao, Office Managing Partner of Perkins Coie’s Palo Alto office. “His in-house experience and his technical know-how allow him to effectively and successfully counsel clients on a wide range of patent issues. Our local clients continue to need sophisticated IP advice, so we expect Michael to be in great demand.”

Glenn has extensive experience in all phases of patent prosecution, including IP audits and strategy, opinions of counsel, pre-litigation patent defense and assertion, appeals, reissues and reexaminations. His matters have involved technologies that include telecommunications, information technology, business methods, medical devices, semiconductors and mechanical inventions.  Glenn is rated AV Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell.
