About Andrew P. Lahser

I am Andrew Lahser, Attorney at law. I enjoy meeting entrepreneurs and small business owners. I help create and enforce patents, trademarks and copyrights to support their business plans. I spend time getting to know my clients and their concerns about competition. Thus, we can spot intellectual property issues before problems arise.

Spot intellectual property issues
before problems arise.

Here is my phone, email and address.

Before taking legal action, I explain the expected costs, an overview of the process, and what enforcement of intellectual property rights might be like for a small business. I estimate the budget before starting work.

I limit my law practice to intellectual property law: patents, trademarks, copyrights and software law.

Former Engineer

Prior to practicing law, I worked as a software engineer for over 12 years:

  • designing labor-allocation systems for assembly lines at Ford;
  • expanding the drug manufacturing systems at Merck’s flagship plant;
  • improving the radio-ratings software process for Arbitron;
  • coordinating Korean and US engineering teams on a warehousing and logistics project for Nike;
  • working technical pre-sales and writing governmental RFP for Compuware; and
  • co-authoring a custom ticketing and online seat assignment system for the NHL’s Hartford Whalers (now the Carolina Hurricanes).

Many years later, much of the code I designed at Ford is still in production. I wrote source code professionally in more than thirty programming languages during my engineering career. Sadly, I do not write software anymore. More importantly, I find that my ability to read and understand computer source code helpful to properly advise software developers.


I graduated from the University of Michigan in 1991 receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in three years. Later, I graduated from the University of Toledo, College of Law in 2000 receiving a Juris Doctor degree.


I am married to my best friend (cliche and true) with two children: 12 and 7. To relax, I spend time with them. Also, I do tai chi, everyday.
