About Clint

Clint Mehall

Clint is partner at Davidson, Davidson & Kappel LLC in New York City where he has prosecuted hundreds of U.S. patent applications from filing to issuance, taking into consideration patent analytics for efficient prosecution without unnecessarily narrowing the claims. During prosecution, he tries to identify when a patent examiner will not issue claims of a reasonable scope, and has filed over a hundred appeals with the USPTO Patent Trial and Appeals Board, with way more wins than losses.
