Lynn J. Alstadt has had widespread experience in all areas of patent, trademark, copyright and unfair competition law including litigation, patent solicitation, licensing, patent interference practice, trademark cancellation and opposition proceedings, International Trade Commission investigations, registration of trademarks and copyrights with the United States Customs Service and related exclusion proceedings. Lynn is a member of the Intellectual Property Section of Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC. He practices and teaches in the fields of patent, trademark, copyright and unfair competition law.

His work involves a wide range of technical subjects including mechanical, electrical, electronic, e-commerce, biotech, chemical, metallurgical and computer fields. He has obtained and litigated patents on a variety of products including computers, business methods, medical devices, corrosion resistant alloys, consumer products and toys. The result in one case was that Lynn's client acquired the infringer in lieu of payment of damages. Inventors, authors, programmers and business managers have sought Lynn's counsel in negotiating and drafting licenses and employment agreements as well as obtaining patents for them.
