Justin Schwechter is a Registered Patent Agent at Gallium Law. Justin previously interned with Dorsey & Whitney, LLP. Before attending graduate school, Justin worked for five years as a design engineer and project manager at Inno-Flex, LLC, manufacturing overlays and membrane assemblies for major appliances. While at Inno-Flex, he led multiple research-and-development and quality-improvement teams.
Justin earned his Master of Science in Patent Law (MSPL) from the University of Minnesota Law School, where he served on the Law Council as the MSPL Representative. He holds a B.S. in Physics from North Central College in Naperville, Illinois, as well as a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Minnesota.
In his spare time, Justin runs long-distance races, including completing the Twin Cities Loony Challenge every year since 2014 (and cursing at himself every time). Justin is also an avid hockey player, having learned to skate at age three. Since North Central College did not have an ice-hockey team, he captained the Cardinals' roller-hockey team prior to moving to Minnesota. He currently captains an A-tier ice-hockey team in the Adult Hockey Association.
