Reid M. DeManche

Though Reid’s interest in technology has been lifelong, he considered a legal career following a controversy over SUV tire failures that highlighted the intersection between engineering, government regulations, and law. Reid was intrigued by an opportunity to combine his technical training, critical thinking skills and desire to help others.

At Quinn IP Law, Reid’s favorite part of his job is supporting entrepreneurs and inventors in achieving what often seems impossible – whether it’s bringing a unique product to market or securing highly-complex patents. Reid’s analytical approach to his life and career makes him an exceptional attorney, and also helps him excel at intricate hobbies like craft beer brewing. He knows that there is never just one path to resolving a problem, and enjoys working with clients to develop creative strategies that fit their needs and goals.

Respecting oneself and others is a simple concept that is central to both my work and personal success. The best way to judge someone’s level of respect for those around them? Watch how they treat animals, interact with restaurant wait staff, and what they do with their shopping cart when they’re done with it.
