Brandon Blackwell counsels clients on patent prosecution in the areas of microfabrication, chemical processes, microfluidics, and power generation.

Brandon’s doctoral work focused on designing, fabricating, and testing a microfluidic fuel processor for portable power generation using MEMS fabrication techniques. He attended the David H. Koch School of Chemical Engineering Practice where he worked for General Mills and Johns Manville. Prior to graduate school, Brandon also designed a unique emissions capture system for a Fortune 50 pharmaceutical company.

  • Prepared and prosecuted patent applications in fields such as microfluidics, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), energy conversion and storage systems, chemical manufacturing and processing technologies, medical device design, catalysis, polymer processing, ceramic processing, and pharmaceutical manufacturing processes.
  • Performed patent literature searches and analyses for freedom to operate and patentability studies.
  • Helped early stage companies identify and analyze pending patent applications of competitors and evaluate risk of infringement as barrier to market entry.
  • Assisted in the development and management of patent portfolios for early-stage companies and leading Boston-area academic institutions.
  • Boston Patent Law Association

While in law school, Brandon received the following awards: Daniel J. Fern Award for graduating first in his class, Lindsay R. Breed Bankruptcy Law Book Award, jurisprudence awards in Constitutional Law, Property, Corporations, Basic Federal Income Tax, and Environmental Law, and Best Brief Award in Legal Practice Skills.

He also received the J. Edward Vivian Award for exemplary performance at Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Practice School and the Eli Lilly Endowment Scholar at the University of Notre Dame. Brandon has also been repeatedly named to the list of Massachusetts Rising Stars by Super Lawyers.
