While much of Shawn Conway’s experience has involved working with companies that have been operational for decades, he also has aided many at their inception by organizing their corporate structure.

This requires advocates, judges and arbitrators to become as well versed as the innovators themselves. Shawn Conway’s intellectual property cases have involved such disparate areas as the processing of jet fuels and the production of a specialized type of concrete.
Joining forces across countries and companies can be the best and sometimes the only way to accomplish an ambitious objective.
