Profile
Andrew Lowes focuses on intellectual property law across a variety of technical fields with a particular emphasis in medical devices, computer software and hardware, telecommunications, semiconductor devices, and mechanical equipment. He is heavily involved in post-grant proceedings before the USPTO, including ex parte reexamination and inter partes review proceedings brought by the firm on behalf of its clients. A number of these proceedings are related to concurrent litigation, and Andrew’s experience in this arena is invaluable in developing defensive strategies in litigation.

Andrew is also active in the Federal Circuit and has recently been recognized among Patexia’s 2021 ranking of the nation’s top lawyers appearing before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC), which specializes in hearing patent appeals. He is ranked 26th among the top 100 best performing attorneys representing appellees in the federal circuit and 25th out of 100 overall.

In addition, Andrew represents several medical device companies and other high technology industries in strategic guidance on product clearance and intellectual property transactions, as well as patent procurement and intellectual property management.

Prior to attending law school, Andrew was a consultant in the nuclear power industry.
