John Moetteli – US Patent Attorney and Former JSC NASA Engineer

Professional Engineer, Inventor, Entrepreneur, and International Patent Attorney-at-law, John Moetteli has been blessed with a successful and interesting professional career. One chapter of significance was featured on the Discovery Channel's Invention series, sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution, in 1996, namely, his experiences as a senior design engineer for NASA in Houston where he was responsible for the design and development of the ORU Transfer Device, NASA's backup to the Canadian Robotic Arm.

John now applies his talents in the practice of law, in particular, patent law, where his thorough understanding of inventing, intellectual property law and business enable him to counsel business managers and inventors alike, regarding the steps necessary to protect inventions against copiers. At his law firm Moetteli & AssociÚs SÓRL, he and his colleagues specialize in US and European Patent, Trademark, and Copyright registrations, including licensing, infringement, invalidity, and enforceability patent opinions involving US patents, software, methods, and biotech patent applications, as well as patent filing strategy.
