Joseph  D. Parish


A graduate of The University of Chicago Law School, Joseph also has degrees in Computer Engineering and Korean from Brigham Young University.

His clients appreciate his natural engineer’s mind and his ability to think thoroughly through an invention. Joseph is not afraid to ask questions, and he doesn’t make assumptions. This enables him to help his clients find additional patentable material and improve their inventions by revealing possible gaps.

He is experienced in helping clients navigate the aftermath of the Supreme Court decision in Alice Corp. v. CLS Bank relating to abstract ideas, which impacts both patent applicants and patent holders. He has worked closely with inventors to draft more than 30 patent applications.

Having been on a mission trip to Korea, Joseph took an interest in other cultures and languages, which lead to his degree in Korean. As a result, his experience includes researching IP issues for foreign litigation teams and assisting in translating patents between Korean and English.
