Phillip M. Pippenger


From a technical standpoint, Phillip has substantial experience with many technologies ranging from cellular communications to consumer electronics.

Although it is impractical in this short space to catalog his experience, recent matters have involved solid state devices, industrial process controls, energy-conservation and generation technologies (fuel cells, power generation, hybrid power systems, etc.), nanotechnology (fullerenes, nanotubes, graphene, etc.), microfluidics, and micro-electromechanical systems.

Phillip holds bachelor degrees in electrical engineering from Caltech and in physics from Wesleyan University. He performed his graduate work at Rice University, obtaining a masters in electrical engineering from Rice University in 1995. Phillip obtained his JD from Cornell University in 1998.

Phillip often authors articles pertaining to current IP topics on request, and is a frequent speaker and presenter at legal conferences when his role as an adjunct professor at an area law school allows.
