Vernon Maine founded the practice in 1993. He is licensed in New Hampshire and Massachusetts, and before the United States Patent Office. He describes his job this way:
“My professional function is really that of a team leader, working for the client, bringing together the creator of the IP asset for his or her knowledge of the subject matter, the client’s IP manager representing the client’s business goals and interests, myself and my associates representing the legal knowledge and skills required for identifying, securing and exploiting rights and monetary opportunities in the IP, and our expert paralegal staff to manage the myriad of details and legal deadlines that must be tracked and attended to in order to make it all work.”
Attorney Maine earned his B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Lowell Technological Institute, now University of Massachusetts, and his J.D. from Franklin Pierce Law Center in Concord N.H. now University of New Hampshire School of Law. He is a U.S. Army Vietnam War veteran, a licensed airplane and helicopter pilot, and an amateur radio operator. He has more than 15 years of pre-law engineering and marketing experience in large and small technology companies, dealing in U.S. and foreign markets. His background gives him a unique perspective and ability to appreciate and provide legal and practical guidance in support of client goals and objectives.
Vern also provides mentoring and assistance to other members of the firm in support of their work. When he is in the office, and not out flying, fishing, or operating his ham radio, Vern can be reached at 603-886-6100.
