Dave Duncan, Associate

Dave's practice focuses on preparing and prosecuting patent applications in the areas of computer technology. Prior to joining Patent Law Works, Dave designed commercial and military cargo aircraft at McDonnell Douglas Corporation, where he began modifying the CAD systems used by his fellow engineers. He then switched exclusively to computer programming and had a long career in software engineering at notable software developers including WordPerfect, Novell, Corel, and Intuit.

More recently, Dave satisfied a long-held desire to study law. While in law school, Dave clerked at Workman Nydegger and Patent Law Works, during the summers, and held fellowships at the school's Center for Law and Biomedical Sciences ("LABS") in his last two years of law school. As a LABS Fellow, Dave drafted 17 provisional patent applications for teams of university students participating in the Center for Medical Innovation's Bench-to-Bedside program. Dave received the Distinguished Pro Bono Law Student Award in his final year of law school. Volunteering at the school's pro bono clinics, Dave logged over 300 hours of volunteer service to clinic clients and helped more than 750 people receive free legal advice.
