Andrew Stover, a former mechanical engineer in the aerospace industry, possesses the hands-on knowledge so advantageous in technically complex patent prosecution matters. He uses that technical knowledge and over 25 years of concentrated patent experience in preparing and prosecuting complicated U.S., foreign and international patent applications, as well as in counseling clients on all aspects of portfolio building, patent protection options, and forward-thinking patent strategy and management.

Intellectual Asset Management Patent 1000 2017 says “Andrew is a great person to get in at the ground level, as he brings strategic insights that can set a portfolio moving in the right direction." Andrew focuses his practice on the mechanical and electro-mechanical arts, including medical devices for imaging, home health, pediatrics, and respiratory care. His other patent prosecutions include those in highway safety, office furniture products, textile machinery and products, agricultural machinery and products, bicycle components and packaging machinery and products.

Andrew enjoys building a profitable portfolio strategy from the ground up. A strong communicator on the technical side, he works with a product’s creators and engineers, then reviews the competitive landscape in order to provide the fullest protection for current applications as well as opportunities that can be harvested in the future. Throughout the process, Andrew counsels his clients on all aspects of intellectual property protection including licensing, patent non-infringement and invalidity opinions as well as litigation, post-grant review, and IPR proceedings options.

Prior to joining Crowell & Moring, Andrew was a shareholder at Brinks Gilson & Lione.
