Alan’s Background

Alan provides the firm’s clients with expertise in a wide range of electrical technologies, including circuits, software, wireless communications, computer and networking hardware and oilfield tools and equipment. Alan has significant experience in domestic and international prosecution, client counseling, prosecution strategies for patent portfolios, patentability searches and analyses and trademark registrations. 

Alan earned a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering at Brigham Young University, where he developed a lasting appreciation for technology and the challenge of turning the electrical behavior of materials into commercial products. Alan interned with Hart Scientific as an undergraduate, providing technical support for their temperature measurement and calibration equipment. He also interned with Maxim Integrated Products, where he designed and built IC test circuits.

In 2002, Alan began working as a technical advisor for Rader, Fishman, & Grauer in Salt Lake City, where he drafted patent applications in the fields of wireless communications, networking and software. Upon discovering that he had a talent for patent prosecution, he enrolled in the University of Houston Law Center and began his tenure at Conley Rose, P.C. as a patent agent, where he developed a reputation as a respected patent prosecutor. He earned his law degree in 2007 and continued at Conley Rose as an associate patent attorney until he joined Krueger Iselin as a senior associate in 2012. He became a partner in the firm in late 2015.  

Alan is fluent in Spanish.
