Prendergast, Ph.D. has been ranked in both the Prosecution and Transactions tables in the 2020 edition of the IAM Patent 1000: The World’s Leading Patent Professionals. The publication serves as a guide for those seeking to identify private practice patent expertise and leading expert witnesses. The IAM Patent 1000, which focuses on multiple jurisdictions across the U.S., prides itself in thorough qualitative research with an emphasis on peer and client feedback.

Dr. Prendergast, who joined the firm as a partner in May 2019, has an extensive record of assisting clients in developing strategies to preserve, manage, and leverage their intellectual property assets. He is admitted to practice in Colorado and before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
