Erise IP is pleased to announce it has welcomed Tyler Knox as an associate attorney in the Denver office, where he focuses on patent litigation. He originally joined the firm in May 2019 as a clerk while completing law school.
In his intellectual property practice, Knox focuses on high-technology patent litigation and post-grant proceedings before the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
Knox’s background blends experience and education in diverse environments. Prior to joining Erise, Knox spent more than six years as a Primary Patent Examiner at the USPTO, including while attending law school. There he enjoyed the opportunity to take on additional roles reviewing junior examiner office actions, training new and experienced examiners, and reviewing technology center office actions for quality assurance compliance. Knox relies on these experiences to help others navigate complex patent issues in sophisticated technology areas.
He earned his legal degree from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, his master’s degree in engineering management from Missouri University of Science and Technology and his undergraduate degree in civil engineering from the United States Military Academy at West Point.
After graduating from West Point, he commanded units of engineer paratroopers at home and abroad as a U.S. Army officer for six years. Knox is also a licensed Professional Engineer (PE) and Project Management Professional (PMP).
