As both an engineer and a patent attorney, Benjamin combines complex technical knowledge with legal principles in order to provide strategic patent advice to clients. After collaborative discussions with the inventor, who is often an expert in their respective scientific field, Benjamin is quick to learn the innovation and then translates the technical jargon into defensible patents. Benjamin tunes the appropriate patent strategy for the individual client, keeping in mind both the client economic realities and the current state of the patent landscape.


He is a regular speaker, mentor and adviser to the tech community; and chapter chair of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Toronto Chapter, engaging with technical and business leaders in the engineering space by hosting speaker events and chairing executive meetings. He mentors and speaks at technology incubators, including The Hatchery (University of Toronto), TechAlliance (London), Vector Institute and Ryerson.
