David A. Riegner

For as long as he can remember, David has been fascinated by technology. Prior to joining Quinn IP Law, David spent 31 years as an engineer at General Motors Technical Center, which provided a broad foundation of knowledge to leverage in his practice with clients. David was deeply fulfilled by his work on advanced technology projects that shaped the development of GM products, and he now takes pride in helping clients in multiple industries use intellectual property law to protect and enhance their own products. He especially enjoys working directly with inventors, and being inspired by the innovation and creativity they infuse into their inventions and companies.

David’s extensive knowledge of both the technical and business aspects of engineering gives him vital insight when developing comprehensive legal strategies to move his clients’ toward their goals. Most importantly, David values the opportunities his work provides him to have a direct impact on the development of potentially world-changing technologies.

When challenges arise, one of the quotes that helps me persevere is from the Bible. ‘Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.’ I am committed to giving my all to each case and client, and this hard work is rewarded many times over when I see them achieve success.
