Tom Chlebeck focuses his practice on patent prosecution, litigation and client counseling relating to computer, electrical, and mechanical technologies.

Prior to joining Wolf Greenfield, Tom worked for Boeing Phantom Works and Boeing Research & Technology in systems and software engineering. His work included proposing and developing a content management system that allows any employee to update and search an executive-level technology showcase through various interfaces. He also developed software to generate complex presentations from multiple databases, to process three-dimensional models, and to simulate defense networks. Additionally, Tom analyzed costs for a successful defensive laser proposal and worked extensively in graphical user interface design and web development.

While in law school, Tom worked as a summer associate for Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP, where he drafted patent applications and assisted with various litigation matters. He also worked with Boeing Intellectual Property Management on matters relating to intellectual property strategy and patent prosecution.

Before law school, Tom worked as a research and teaching assistant for multiple engineering professors. His senior design project comprised competing in the University Nanosat-6 Program, where he was involved in designing a satellite that NASA ultimately selected for launch. He received numerous offers in leadership development programs throughout the aerospace industry due in part to his leadership roles, including serving as a vice president in his university’s student government.
