Meet the Quinn IP Law Attorneys

Les Hodges

With over 20 years of corporate engineering and legal experience in the automotive, healthcare, transportation, lighting and military defense industries, Les brings a wealth of experience to his practice of IP law.  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.

At the end of the day, after we’ve filed that patent application or closed that deal, it’s all about people and relationships. I love the feeling that we’re on the same team, working toward a common goal, and the prospect of putting together our technical best and our personal best to accomplish something we’re all really proud of.
