Jeffrey Marlink is a registered patent attorney who focuses his practice on patent preparation, prosecution, and related counseling primarily in the electronics and software industries. He has experience in preparing and prosecuting patent applications in the United States and in accordance with the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT). Additionally, Jeffrey has prosecuted patent applications in foreign jurisdictions and before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
Jeffrey has assisted large corporations to individual inventors in patent prosecution and preparation in many technical areas including electronic hardware, computer software, telecommunications, and mechanical devices. Whether it is management of his client’s patent portfolio, prosecution in view of the client’s marketing objectives, or guiding the client through the patent process, Jeffrey strives to effectively achieve his clients’ goals.
Prior to joining the firm, Jeffrey was a patent attorney in the Portland, Oregon office of an intellectual property law firm where he focused his practice on prosecution of patents, trademarks, and copyright protection. Previously, Jeffrey was a patent associate in the Portland, Oregon office of a Pacific Northwest law firm where he drafted patent applications related to semiconductor packaging and processing, computer hardware, cellular standards, and mechanical devices.
Prior to launching his legal career, Jeffrey worked on the evaluation of a power system for a major electronics company and electrical design and testing for a small technology furniture company. The experience he gained at these companies has led Jeffrey to understand the importance of interrelation of technology areas within a product (such as the intertwining of mechanical components, electrical components, and computer software).

While we are pleased to have you contact us by telephone, surface mail, electronic mail, or by facsimile transmission, contacting Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP or any of its attorneys does not create an attorney-client relationship. The formation of an attorney-client relationship requires consideration of multiple factors, including possible conflicts of interest. An attorney-client relationship is formed only when both you and the Firm have agreed to proceed with a defined engagement.
DO NOT CONVEY TO US ANY INFORMATION YOU REGARD AS CONFIDENTIAL UNTIL A FORMAL CLIENT-ATTORNEY RELATIONSHIP HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED.
If you do convey information, you recognize that we may review and disclose the information, and you agree that even if you regard the information as highly confidential and even if it is transmitted in a good faith effort to retain us, such a review does not preclude us from representing another client directly adverse to you, even in a matter where that information could be used against you.
