REGISTERED PATENT AGENT
Nathan B. Davis is a patent agent with Heslin Rothenberg Farley & Mesiti P.C. Mr. Davis has a Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from Union College. His primary focus is on patent preparation and prosecution. Mr. Davis is familiar with numerous technologies with particular emphasis in the chemical and nanomaterials fields including semiconductor nanocrystals (quantum dots) and their inclusion into matrix materials such as epoxies, sol-gels, resins and polymers used in spin coating, drop casting, and printing. He also worked extensively in the integration of nanomaterials into such applications as LEDs, photovoltaics (solar cells), electroluminescent devices, and barcodes. Additionally, he has experience with semiconductors, solid state lighting, medical devices, software, NMR and MRI, and mechanical engineering. Mr. Davis has also researched inclusion chemistry of nanoclays incorporating heavy-metal scintillator materials, particularly Cerium based organometallics, developing the synthesis, characterization, and optimization of an organocerium scintillator material. He has also used such materials to develop thin films, studying the luminescent properties of scintillators and self-assembly of nanoscale clays.
Prior to joining the firm, Mr. Davis was a patent agent at Hoffman Warnick LLC. Before this, Mr. Davis also served various roles at Evident Technologies, including managing the intellectual property portfolio, drafting patent applications and responses to office actions for outside counsel, analyzing and assessing internal invention disclosures, client management, and completing patent landscapes. He also assisted with the development of new technologies, as well as with the trademark portfolio and branding of Evident’s previous technologies.
Mr. Davis is registered to practice as a patent agent before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and is a member of the American Chemical Society.
In his spare time, Mr. Davis enjoys writing, recording, and playing music in a local metal band. He is also an avid homebrewer and a fifteenth century reenactor, demonstrating full contact combat in plate armor.
