Shlomo S. Moshen received his undergraduate degree in the life sciences from Touro University, Lander College of Arts and Sciences in 2007 and his law degree from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in 2012. Shlomo is a licensed attorney in New York and New Jersey and is also a registered patent attorney to represent clients before the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
Shlomo has over 12 years of experience assisting inventors with their mechanical, electrical and software inventions. (An occasional chemical invention is also fun.) Shlomo finds software inventions the most challenging and rewarding following the Supreme Court decision in Alice Corp. v. CLS Bank International, 573 U.S. 208 (2014), a decision which suggested to many that most software inventions would be ineligible for patent protection in the U.S. In fact, Shlomo worked on his first software invention shortly following the Alice ruling, where the U.S. Patent Office initially withdrew the application from issuance (but which ultimately was granted as U.S. Patent No. 10265617)) as being included in a small group of applications that were most likely to be ineligible for patent protection under the Alice ruling.
Shlomo also enjoys working with clients to challenge or circumvent potential prior art, such as during the patent drafting stage. (Prior art is any evidence that the invention is already known, in part or in whole.) For instance, if the client is aware of a particular relevant prior art reference, Shlomo will collaborate with the client to identify new features or changes that can be made to distinguish the invention over the prior art.
Prior to joining The Law Office of David W. Barman, PA, Shlomo spent eight years at Bruzga & Associates, an intellectual property boutique in lower Manhattan. There, Shlomo helped an energy research company to obtain multiple patents in the U.S. and abroad for their innovations with inertial confinement fusion reactions, among other technologies. Shlomo also worked with several Japanese law firms to help their clients obtain patents in the U.S. for a wide range of technologies.
