Mitch Williams practices intellectual property law with an emphasis on patent litigation and counseling. He joined Carlson Caspers in 2020 following two summers with the firm, where he was introduced to intellectual property litigation.
Before law school, Mitch worked as a patent agent, where he focused on drafting and prosecuting patent applications before the USPTO. He also specialized in patent searching, which honed his ability to assess patentability, product landscape, and infringement risk. His work spanned many areas, from implantable medical devices to food manufacturing processes.
While obtaining his Mechanical Engineering degree, Mitch interned for an audio equipment company. He studied product failure modes, built electromechanical reliability testing machines, and took part in prototyping a new product.
Mitch has volunteered with the LegalCORPS Inventor Assistance Program and drafted a non-provisional patent application for a solo inventor.
In his spare time, Mitch enjoys aviation and coaching high school quiz bowl.
