Troy, Mich.— July 31, 2023—Intellectual property law firm Fishman Stewart PLLC is pleased to announce that Gregory M. Bussell has returned to the firm as an associate attorney. He was previously with the firm from 2017 to 2021.

While at Fishman Stewart, Bussell developed IP expertise related to a variety of computer software/hardware, artificial intelligence (AI), and other mechanical and electrical technologies. He prepared and prosecuted U.S. utility patent applications in the electrical, mechanical, and software arts, which encompassed autonomous vehicle, seat and seat-track assembly, electrical component, electrical house, fluid control system, household appliance, and medical device applications.

“Accruing diverse knowledge on his journey back to the firm, Fishman Stewart is delighted with Gregory Bussell’s return,” Managing Partner Michael Stewart said. “His IP skillset, along with his specialized expertise in the burgeoning electrical technology and computing fields, will present incredible opportunities to better serve our clients and protect their intellectual creativity and capital.” 

Bussell received his Juris Doctor from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law in 2017 and earned his Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, with a concentration in computer engineering, also from the University of Detroit Mercy.
