From full-service IP to a trademark prosecution-focused practice, Johnson gained nearly nine years of varied IP experience in Austin, Texas, and Davenport, Iowa, before coming on board. Johnson’s strength stems from his ability to learn and quickly grasp his clients’ intellectual property objectives and their industries to apply the best legal approach to maximize enterprise value within their business models or resolve adversarial matters.
Johnson received his Juris Doctor from The University of Iowa College of Law and double major B.A. in Journalism and Studio Art from The University of Iowa in Iowa City.
