Robert J. Harris - Partner & Patent Attorney

Bob is a founding partner at VHPM and a registered US Patent Attorney. Bob leads a group of Ph.D. organic chemists who prepare and prosecute United States and international patent applications for inventions originating in university research laboratories, major pharmaceutical companies, and start-up companies. Clients also rely on Bob for strategic portfolio guidance, patent-related legal opinions, and educational presentations. From the beginning, Bob envisioned a firm that would provide exceptional patent prosecution services for clients and superior work-life balance for members of the firm. We’re still working on the work-life balance part.
