He has a Ph.D. in Molecular Genetics and Bio-Chemistry and is registered to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). He’s Paul Weaver, Saint Joseph High School, Class of 1986. This former Hillside resident was just as busy in high school, before earning a bachelor degree from Loyola University, a doctorate from the Ohio State University, and being a post-doc fellow in Immunology at the University of Minnesota.

“I played soccer, wrestled, and was a member of the Honors Program and National Honor Society,” Paul recalled in a phone interview from the Kagan Binder law office in Stillwater, Minnesota, outside of the Twin Cities. “At St. Joe’s I studied, worked, and played hard. St. Joe’s has a strong math curriculum that provided a solid foundation for my studies in the sciences.”

Paul now represents inventors and clients in the medical device, chemical, agricultural, and pharmaceutical industries. “I prepare, file, and process patent applications with the USPTO based on client inventions. I also perform patentability and due diligence analysis of patent portfolios. I keep pretty busy. The Twin Cities has a robust medical device industry, but our clients are from all over the US, as well as Europe and Asia. I’ve worked on some pretty interesting technologies including drug delivery devices, transgenic crops and microorganisms, molecular diagnostics, and large molecule therapeutics.”

Paul is married (his wife is an attorney doing similar work) with three children.

We are very proud of this Charger! Congratulations, Paul!
