Professor John Rizvi is a
Board-Certified Patent Attorney, Adjunct Professor of law, and
recognized speaker in the field of intellectual property. He has
over 20 years of experience in patent and trademark law and is one
of the first group of attorneys ever to be Board Certified as an
expert in this field.
He is a recognized TED Talker with 2 of his talks featured last
year in Inventor’s Digest in a listing of the “top 10 TED Talks for
Inventors”. His books "Escaping the Gray" and "Think and Grow Rich
for Inventors" are international best sellers and have won critical
acclaim including an endorsement from Kevin Harrington, one of the
original sharks on the hit TV show - Shark Tank, responsible for
the successful launch of over 500 products resulting in more than
$5 billion in sales worldwide.
Professor Rizvi has been interviewed by ABC, CBS, The American
Lawyer, CTV, and The Business Journal, and he perfected his craft
at one of the most prestigious and revered patent law firms in the
world - a firm that counts Bell, Edison, the Wright Brothers and
Ford among its distinguished list of famous inventor clients.
Eventually, he grew tired of corporate patent work for large
multi-national companies and formed his own law firm 18 years ago
so that he could work directly with inventors and start-up
entrepreneurs in helping them protect their ideas. In his own
practice, he has seen his clients start with nothing but an idea
and take their invention all the way through to the successful
launch of their product often generating millions in revenues from
the sale or licensing of their patents.
