Craig C. Scheuern
Craig’s commitment to integrity, serving others, and pursuing excellence was a core aspect of his military service as an Intelligence Operations Officer in the U.S. Air Force and his work experience as an electrical engineer at various private sector organizations. This spirit of service and excellence continues to influence his work at Quinn IP Law, where his clients depend on him to devise and execute well-planned legal strategies.
Craig first joined Quinn IP Law back in 2005 and thus is one of the longest-serving members of our legal team. He is an electrical engineer with an eclectic technical background and a passion for innovation that helps him to quickly build rapport with his clients while assisting them in representing their diverse inventions before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
Craig specializes in the preparation and prosecution of domestic, foreign, and international patent applications across a broad range of technical fields. Such fields include robotics for manufacturing and space exploration, aerospace, ground-based and airborne remote sensing, radio frequency (RF) communications, semiconductor-based power electronics, power generation and transmission systems, and software-based applications, as well as automatic control systems and related methodologies. Craig harnesses his clients’ curiosity and creativity into a defensible intellectual property portfolio that increases market standing. He also provides counseling on the strategic management of intellectual property to realize the full value of an invention.
Prior to joining Quinn IP Law, Craig worked in both sales and engineering at Parker Hannifin Corp., a Fortune 250 company and global leader in motion and control technologies for a diverse range of aerospace, manufacturing, transportation, and biomedical applications. Prior to his time with Parker Hannifin, Craig worked as a product engineer with the former Solectron Corp. (purchased by Flextronics in 2007), a global electronics manufacturing company.
Craig’s most influential and personally rewarding past role was his service as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Air Force (USAF). There, Craig specialized in Intelligence Operations, including target recognition support to the earliest of the USAF/CIA Predator and other unmanned aerial vehicle missions, providing direct-to-cockpit digital imagery support to USAF and joint forces fighter crews, pre- and post-strike target analysis, and other complex technical functions. Craig’s military experience also reinforced the core values of integrity, service, and excellence that differentiate him as a leader in his field.
Craig received his Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from Michigan Technological University, and his Juris Doctor from Wayne State University, with honors. He is registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and is a member of the Michigan Intellectual Property Law Association and the Detroit Veterans Bar Association.
