Peter Hoeller

Peter J. Hoeller specifically focuses his practice on the strategic building, litigating, and licensing of patent and trademark portfolios. Mr. Hoeller represents businesses of all sizes, ranging from the Fortune 100 to start-ups, and helps his clients realize the potential of their IP assets—either in court, before the U.S. Patent Office, or across the negotiation table.

Mr. Hoeller has drafted and prosecuted thousands of patent applications in a wide variety of electrical and mechanical arts. He has extensive experience with innovations in software, analog and digital circuitry, oil-and-gas equipment, telecommunications, semiconductor and MEMS fabrication, alternative fuel, web searching, and social media.

Another aspect of Mr. Hoeller’s practice is the counseling and preparation of legal opinions regarding potential conflicts arising from competitors’ patents. Along these lines, Mr. Hoeller has prepared numerous invalidity, freedom-to-operate, non-infringement, and patentability opinions for patents and technologies in the software, electrical, and mechanical arts. Having a background in electrical engineering allows Mr. Hoeller to deeply understand the underlying technology of potentially asserted patents and advise his clients on the likelihood that such patents will create problems in their business.

In addition to providing transactional advice, Mr. Hoeller has litigated several IP infringement cases. While he generally counsels his clients on avoiding patent conflicts, often litigation cannot be avoided. Mr. Hoeller has substantial experience representing clients sued for patent infringement, trademark infringement, and trade secret misappropriation.

Mr. Hoeller has written and spoken on a variety of intellectual property topics, including but not limited to:

Mr. Hoeller is admitted to practice in Texas and Missouri State Courts, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
