Les is an Intellectual Property Attorney at Quinn IP Law, where he brings more than two decades of corporate
engineering, management and in-house legal experience in the automotive, healthcare, transportation, lighting and military defense industries.  As a former in-house IP counsel at Ford, Visteon, GM and GE, he understands the value of a strong intellectual property portfolio, and how strategic IP transactions and monetization can be used to leverage and extract value from a client’s IP portfolio.

Les’ favorite part about working at Quinn IP Law is that he gets to combine two of the things he enjoys most – technology and people.  Getting to work with great people on interesting technologies and projects, and developing relationships with his clients to better understand their needs and help them achieve and exceed their goals, is what drives Les to provide the level of service his clients have come to expect and highly value.
