Stout's intellectual property law practice spans over 40 years and encompasses experience in nearly all facets of patent law, including patent prosecution, IP portfolio management, licensing, and litigation. He has written and prosecuted hundreds of patent applications in diverse technologies, rendered opinions on patent infringement and validity, and testified as an expert witness regarding the procurement and prosecution of patents.
