Calvin Cheng brings a unique combination of patent prosecution expertise, technical proficiency, and patent litigation experience to his intellectual property practice. With a special emphasis on electrical hardware and computing software, his practice is well-suited for a broad spectrum of technical subject areas. Calvin’s practice primarily focuses on wireless communication, wireless standards issues, radio circuitry design, the Internet of things (IoT), location-based services, networking, power sources, discrete and integrated circuit (including capacitor and semiconductor) component design, cloud-based software, security software, information technology (IT) software, artificial intelligence, electronic displays, peripheral device design, computer-controlled camera systems, machine-learning, and electromechanical and mechanical systems and controls. He also has extensive experience in a variety of other technology areas, including banking and investment software, oil and gas systems and software, park attractions and management software, and so on. From guiding some of the world’s leading consumer electronics, computer hardware and software, and online and financial service specialists through the patent preparation and acquisition process, to evaluating claim construction, patent infringement, and validity positions, Calvin provides strategic counsel and advice to multiple Fortune 100 clients on a wide variety of intellectual property issues.
With years of experience preparing, prosecuting, and litigating patents and working in the high-tech industry, Calvin understands not only his clients’ technical needs, but also the best way to formulate and assert their bottom-line business objectives. He takes pride in providing responsive client service and finding the most efficient way to solve his clients’ business challenges in order to achieve their intellectual property goals. In addition to patent preparation and evaluation, Calvin’s practice includes working with his clients to develop and strengthen their IP portfolios.
When not working with his clients, Calvin enjoys spending time with his daughter JJ and son Maxwell (whom his wife begrudgingly agreed to let him name after local Houston sports heroes JJ Watt and Vernon Maxwell), and organizing Happy Hours and legendary Kickball Tournaments for his coworkers and friends.
