I started my legal career in 2004 with a reputable law firm, Ballard Spahr Andrews & Ingersoll, in Washington, D.C.

Prior to becoming an attorney, I acted as a management liaison as well as a Nuclear Licensing Manager, Nuclear Regulatory Affairs Division Manager, and Senior Counsel for a number of nuclear utilities, interfacing with federal and state regulatory agencies, such as the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the State Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Public Service of the State and other government agencies, to coordinate and resolve legal, commercial, technical and safety-related issues for the protection of public health and safety.

Joseph Mott

I began my career as an engineer in New York City after graduating from Princeton University (BSE) and obtained an advanced degree at the Polytechnic Institute of New York (MS). I moved to Arizona and attended ASU Law School with the intention of returning to the east coast as an engineer-plus-lawyer. Never went back.

I started at a Phoenix law firm that practiced the new “computer law” on a national scale, representing the giant IBM and recent start-ups Apple Computer and Integrated Electronics (Intel). We fought with Microsoft over computer interface copyrights and with the Beatles over the “Apple” trademark. New York didn’t offer more excitement than that. Over the last 35+ years, with two major Phoenix firms, my practice has been counseling and litigation with a major emphasis on intellectual property – patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets – and associated business issues.

Today I practice patent and IP law in a boutique intellectual property firm in Scottsdale. I like to read about black holes and about quantum entanglement.
