Shant Tchakerian

I build patent portfolios to protect companies’ technology, leveraging my technical background and 10 years of experience in patent law. After graduating from Loyola Law School, I spent over 6 years at IP firm Fitzpatrick helping one of the largest U.S. patent owners obtain patents related to software, computer hardware, and electronics.  I have also developed arguments for patent litigation, provided opinions on patent infringement, and structured patent licensing deals.  

Prior to law school, I worked at Microsoft where I developed features for Microsoft's web server software. My engineering background allows me to deep dive into the technology with CEOs, CTOs and inventors.

I founded Tchakerian Law to help startups and other technology companies develop patent portfolios and turn their innovation into a lasting and valuable asset.

When not practicing law, you can find me reading about technology trends, skateboarding, or spending quality time with my wife and toddler.
