Other Details

Anthony Smyth

Anthony Smyth is a registered intellectual property attorney with a focus on patent law. Anthony has substantial experience in patent preparation and patent prosecution, licensing, infringement and invalidity opinions. After completing his undergrad studies in his homeland of Belfast, Ireland and prior to attending law school, Anthony worked as an electrical engineer for multiple major leading companies and managed a major client account for one of the largest information technology outsourcing companies in the world. Before earning his law credentials, Anthony lived in Switzerland for eight years and then worked as an engineer in sales organization for a world leader in embedded and mobile software while attending law school.

Prior to joining Loza & Loza, Anthony was an associate with an international, full-service law firm and has worked as a patent attorney involving patent prosecution in software, electrical, and mechanical arts. He has counseled clients in technical areas including:

  • Data security
  • Biometrics and encryption
  • Radar systems
  • Mobile devices and their applications
  • Medical, chemical, and agricultural systems
  • Software including search engines, analytics, and business methods

“What clients don’t realize is what goes into the complicated process [of protecting an invention], said Anthony. “I can help alleviate that burden. I feel like I’m doing something productive for the inventors, and I like the visibility into the technology”.

Aside from law and technology, Anthony’s interests and passions range from photography, astronomy, his family, and he has an ongoing love for travel and spending time exploring different places and countries.
