Fascinated by chemistry and the process of ideation, creation, testing and improvement, Adam Baechler worked as a materials and process engineer while earning his degree in chemical engineering. He brings his technical knowledge and skill, along with his ability to speak the language of inventors, to defending clients’ intellectual property assets.
Adam performs legal research and drafts memoranda addressing patent misuse and divided infringement, provides comprehensive technical analysis for patent clearance opinions, and responds to actions relating to chemicals, software, control systems, and medical devices.

While earning his law degree, Adam worked with three Chicago law firms. In those roles, he drafted memoranda outlining Alice analysis prongs, a provisional patent application for an organosilane-based sealant system, and claims for a thermal process control scheme, cellular applications, and chemical additives.
Adam gained additional experience prior to law school as a process engineer with two major U.S. chemical companies in their fluoroelastomer and aramid divisions. He spearheaded process improvements that were valued in excess of $250,000, oversaw plant and related operations, and developed testing procedures to release over $500,000 worth of inventory. Additionally, Adam managed distributed process control system changes, including numerous upgrades of bulk property monitoring sensors and software.
Outside of his practice, Adam enjoys acrylic painting, woodworking and woodturning, cooking, and working on his diesel truck.
