The four attorneys join Dorsey from the Salt Lake City office of Stoel Rives LLP. This group relies on the addition of a brand partner Lake Catherine Parrish, who joined earlier this month, also from Stoel Rives. Dorsey has made a strategic effort to increase its presence in Salt Lake City. With the latest additions to the patenting group, Dorsey’s ranks will have grown more than 65% in Salt Lake City since 2015.

“We are delighted to have this powerful patent and trademark group join Dorsey,” said Elizabeth Buckingham, partner and head of firm-wide intellectual property groups. “They build on Dorsey’s expertise in our key industries such as technology, healthcare and energy, while bringing additional capabilities that will help us better meet our customers’ IP needs.”

Aaron Barker provides patent-related services for clients ranging from emerging start-ups to large public companies. He focuses his practice on strategy, preparation and prosecution of US and foreign patents in a wide variety of technology areas. In addition to patent enforcement and portfolio management, Aaron advises clients in the areas of patentability, patent validity, patent infringement, intellectual property due diligence, licensing intellectual property and pre-litigation advice. His vast technical knowledge ranges from laser treatment systems to alternative energy systems to communication systems.

Matthieu Bethards advises medical device, life science, and chemical technology companies on patent matters through strategic intellectual property counsel, U.S. and foreign patent acquisition, and portfolio management. He helps his clients develop and deploy comprehensive patent strategies on a global scale to maximize the exclusivity of clients’ products and avoid and defeat infringement claims. Matt has also developed strategies for numerous opposition and appeal proceedings at the European Patent Office and other opposition proceedings around the world.

Jason McCammon advises on all aspects of patent strategy in a variety of technology areas, including medical devices, solar and green energy technologies, and mechanical devices. He has extensive experience in the preparation and prosecution of U.S. and foreign patents, and works closely with clients to develop strategies for robust protection of their inventions, from initial invention disclosure through patent issuance. Prior to entering private practice, Jason was a law clerk to the Honorable N. Randy Smith of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Jordan Olson provides patent litigation in the United States and abroad and advice to clients. His practice also encompasses freedom to operate assessments, due diligence investigations and patentability analyses, and he has experience in patent litigation and patent dispute resolution. Clients Jordan serves include large and small companies in the life sciences, medical, chemical and manufacturing sectors.

“The growth we’ve seen in our Salt Lake City office is extraordinary,” said Dorsey Managing Partner Bill Stoeri. “The addition of these exceptional legal professionals reinforces our commitment to expanding our presence in the Mountain West region and allows us to provide even more depth and service to our exceptional clientele.”
