Jared J. Braithwaite

Registered Patent Attorney Shareholder

Although Jared is experienced in many areas affecting business disputes, he focuses his practice on intellectual property litigation—including disputes involving patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets. Because his academic studies included biomedical engineering, computer science, and electrical engineering, he is particularly adept at understanding and presenting today’s complex, interdisciplinary technologies in court.

Jared appears in state and federal courts across the country and is admitted to the California and Utah state bars. He also represents clients in appeals before the United States Supreme Court and the United States Federal Circuit Court of Appeals. Jared is recognized by Mountain States Super Lawyers as a rising star in intellectual property litigation and as among Utah’s Legal Elite by Utah Business Magazine. He also excelled in law school and served as Senior Editor for the BYU Law Review and as a board member of the BYU Trial Advocacy Team.

In addition, Jared is a registered patent attorney, and he uses his experience enforcing intellectual property rights to help his clients obtain high-quality patents trademarks, and licensing agreements that will withstand the rigors of litigation.
