As the head of the Patent Department, Mr. Greenspan has had primary response-bility for overseeing the department for over two decades—a period that had seen dramatic changes in the laws and practices within the field of Intellectual Property.

Mr. Greenspan’s experience focuses on patent prosecution and litigation. He has, however, counseled clients in connection with numerous areas of IP including licensing, trademarks, copyrights, patent validity and infringement issues, international patent and trademark prosecutions, enforcement and licensing, litigation and appeals in the federal courts and IP portfolio management.

Mr. Greenspan was raised in Paris, France and reads technical French and German. After graduating with a Bachelor's Degree in Electronic Engineering, Mr. Greenspan joined the Applied Electronics Department of Airborne Instruments Laboratory, where he designed and developed a wide range of components and systems in the fields of aerospace and communications. During this period he began further studies in electronics, towards a Masters Degree in Electronic Engineering. Mr. Greenspan authored a number of technical articles, including, “Shielding Effects in Thin-Film Integrated Circuits,” published in the IEEE Transactions On Electromagnetic Compatibility, 1969.

Mr. Greenspan graduated Brooklyn Law School in 1968 with a J.D. degree. Desiring to combine his engineering background with the law, Mr. Greenspan attended New York University in the Graduate Law Studies Division, and in 1972 earned a Masters of Law Degree (L.L.M.) in Trade Regulations with a concentration in Intellectual Property. Mr. Greenspan wrote a number of articles relating to Intellectual Property, including “Preserving Rights in Recorded Works” published in the Patent Law Review, Clark Boardman Company, Ltd. and “Patent Trademark and Copyright Considerations in the Toy Industry,” published in Hobbies Toys & Crafts.


Mr. Greenspan started practicing IP law in 1970. He joined a pharmaceutical company where he set up an in-house IP Department. Mr. Greenspan also served as an associate professor at the Graduate Engineering Center of the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn where he taught an “Intellectual Property for Engineers” course to engineering and science graduate students. He has continued to lecture at CCNY on contemporary topics in IP to engineering and science students and faculty.

Mr. Greenspan has lectured extensively on topics of Intellectual Property, including on the Role of Intellectual Property in a Free Market Economy; and has been a lecturer and panelist in St. Petersburg and Moscow in Russia before the Russian Academy of Sciences and at the Kazakhstan Patent Office in Alma-Atah while that Office was being established after the Russian Republics Separated from Russia upon the termination of the Soviet Union.

Mr. Greenspan has litigated and argued before the USPTO Board of Appeals, Federal District Courts in Florida, Minnesota, California, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Illinois and  has litigated patent and trademark causes in the U.K. and France.

He has extensive experience in high technology fields including complex mechanical systems, optics and optical systems, electronic and electromechanical components and systems including microwave components and communication systems; semiconductor devices and integrated circuits, control and security networks, business methods and web-based applications, wire stranding and cable manufacturing machinery, medical devices and industrial designs.
