We are happy to announce that registered patent attorney Sean Combs has joined Talem IP as an associate!
Sean graduated in 2011 with bachelor degrees in Mining and Civil Engineering from West Virginia University. Sean then worked for three years as a mining engineer and manager for Alpha Natural Resources before switching career paths and going to University of Florida Levin College of Law in the fall of 2015.
In law school, Sean volunteered in the Student Recruitment Office and was an active member of UF’s intellectual property law program. Sean took classes in copyrights, patents, trademarks, and trade secrets, as well as other intellectual property classes and intellectual property related subjects. Sean also interned at the USPTO as a patent examiner after his first year in law school, where he was exposed to a variety of technologies, including art unit 2600 in imaging, as well as how the patenting process works on the government side. Sean received UF’s intellectual property law certificate upon graduation.
After graduating from law school, Sean took and passed the Florida Bar and became a full-time member of Talem IP! We are excited about his wide-range of technology skill sets as well as his real-world industry knowledge from his time working as an engineer.
