Attorney Headshot Greg Sueoka Managing Partner (801) 258-9821


As Managing Partner and Founder of Patent Law Works LLP, Greg brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the practice of patent law. His development of this new model of patent practice synthesizes his beliefs that with the ubiquity of the global marketplace, the growing complexity of patent laws in many geographic arenas, the old-world model of a practice addicted to billable hours and its guild mentality all result in the need to create a new model. (See firm overview).

His practice focus includes intellectual property strategic counseling, domestic and international patent prosecution and intellectual property audits. Greg was recently selected as one of the top 250 leading IP strategists in the world by IAM Strategy 250.

With more than 20 years’ experience, Greg’s practice ranges from strategic business and patent analysis to creating mid and long-term patent protection plans. Patent prosecution and pre-litigation counseling are also emphasized in his work. Greg’s clients include companies large and small in information technology. The technology areas include software, computer architecture, computer systems, communications, digital electronics and semiconductors.

Greg’s clients have included Apple, Inc., Omniture, Ricoh Innovations, Inc. and Toyota InfoTechnology Center USA, Inc.

His management and leadership experience include founding an intellectual property boutique and serving as Managing Partner of Fenwick & West and Chairman of the Patent Group.
