Jason Young - Patent Law

Jason Young, BSE Engineering, University of Michigan; JD Law, Detroit College of Law (Michigan State University College of Law), is a registered U.S. patent attorney specializing in patent drafting and prosecution, patent searching, and patentability assessment of new inventions, with twenty-five years of experience. He was registered with the U.S Patent and Trademark Office as a patent agent in 1989, and as a patent attorney in 1993.

Jason has operated his own patent law practice in Traverse City since 2002, with an emphasis on helping inventors and businesses navigate the critical early phases of patent protection, and on guiding them efficiently through the patent process. Before that he was a shareholder at a downstate firm, with responsibility for the patent dockets/portfolios of larger companies.

Although focusing in recent years on patent prosecution before the U.S. Patent Office, his background also includes patent infringement evaluation, patent litigation, patent interferences, trademark and copyright prosecution and litigation, and Patent Cooperation Treaty practice.

Jason is admitted to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office, the courts of the State of Michigan, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, and the U.S. Court of Appeals (Sixth Circuit).

In his free time he can be found gardening with his family; hiking; reading history; and dabbling in foreign languages.
