Michael is an attorney with Shook, Hardy, and Bacon LLP.  He was formerly a drilling engineer at ExxonMobil, where he designed wells for offshore and onshore locations in Asia and Africa.  After some time as a drilling engineer, he pursued a law degree, and now primarily practices patent litigation.  He recently co-authored an SPE paper regarding current regulatory impacts on hydraulic fracturing.  He holds a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Purdue University and a juris doctorate from the University of Houston Law Center.

Full Description

Intellectual property is an important subject for everyone involved in oilfield operations, but particularly for engineers. At a broad level, it encompasses four areas – patents, copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets.  Intellectual property can be critical to a company’s success, and also to an individual’s success. This luncheon will cover the basics of the four areas of intellectual property, and provide an opportunity to ask questions of attorneys who are also engineers and understand the oilfield industry.
