Sean Crandall is a veteran patent attorney with experience in some of our nation's largest legal practices. Sean's practice involves all aspects of intellectual property, including patents, trademarks, copyrights, and licensing.

Sean has drafted and successfully prosecuted hundreds of patents in the electronic and mechanical arts. He has extensive experience in endpoint, network, and enterprise security, machine learning and artificial intelligence, data center technologies, microprocessor and DSP architecture, and LTE, RF, and other wireless technologies.

Sean manages and strategically directs large client portfolios of both domestic and foreign matters.

Besides transactional IP work, Sean has handled complex multi-party patent litigation matters, C&D work, licensing and royalties, and counseling clients on IP infringement. In copyrights and licensing, Sean has particular experience in open source licensing and damages, and runs his own Linux-based home network.

Before entering the legal profession, Sean gained valuable technical experience working as a systems engineer for a major U.S. defense contractor. This included overseeing subcontractor work, designing, programming and troubleshooting software, designing and validating electronic test systems, and selecting, testing, and qualifying high-reliability radiation-hardened parts and materials.

Outside of work, Sean is passionate about his work with North Star International, a nonprofit organization that supports and advocates for the LBGT community within the Church of Jesus Christ. (Sean was recently elected to the Board of Directors for a three-year term.)

He is also a longtime member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and is an amateur radio supporter.

Sean was named a San Antonio "Rising Star" by Scene in S.A. Monthly (2009).
