Firm Overview

We believe that inventors are the most important people in the world because inventors change the world. The Plus IP Firm was founded to help inventors take their dreams and convert them into reality while making the world a better place in the process. Through our proven method and experience, we make sure that inventors are credited for - and benefit from - their inventions and ideas. Over the years, we have secured and defended the IP for sole inventors, mid-size companies, and large corporations. We are committed to protecting your ideas so you can go to market faster and make a profit.

At the Plus IP Firm, we are not just attorneys, we are inventors. We started as engineers that won patents, trademarks, and copyrights for our own ideas and inventions. In addition, we've worked in industrial and manufacturing firms, and have helped build and grow companies from the inside. Our inside knowledge of the U.S. Patent Office gives us the ability to support small inventors and businesses in ways other intellectual property attorneys can't.

The Plus IP Firm
Derek Fahey

I am an engineer and a patent attorney. I truly love what I do. I am a naturally inquisitive person, I love understanding how things work and how I can make them better. I enjoy being involved with the creative process - and I consider myself very fortunate that as a patent attorney I can help people profit from their ideas, concepts, and innovations. My clients inspire me, which compels me to help them so that they can improve the lives of others.

I graduated from Florida State University, magna cum laude, with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering. Before attending law school to study patent law, I worked as an engineer for several years. I use my engineering experiences to help protect my clients' inventions on a daily basis.

While I was a practicing engineer I gained experience as an Industrial Engineer at Boston Scientific, a medical device company, helping develop coronary stents. I was also fortunate enough to work as a Senior Field Engineer with Schlumberger, a global energy services company. While at Schlumberger I worked in different countries all over the world, including Algeria, Canada, France, and the United States. As a Senior Field Engineer with Schlumberger, I worked with and troubleshot sophisticated electronic equipment and software programs in very remote areas, including the Sahara Desert.

After leaving Schlumberger, I worked for NextEra Energy, formally Florida Power and Light. At NextEra Energy, I designed electrical infrastructure and facilities for various locations. My engineering experience helps me understand my clients' complex mechanical, electrical, and software-related inventions.

Allow me to use my experience as an engineer and training as a patent attorney to help you achieve your goals.
