About Me (Company description, Biography, Services I provide):
Inventa Capital was founded and is managed by Michael George Shariff, Esq, US and Canadian Patent attorney with unique experience in all spheres of patent prosecution and M&A work. Mr. Shariff specializes in helping clients to bring their innovative products to market. As a Patent Attorney in Michigan, his work included filing and prosecuting patent applications, conducting prior art searches and investigations, assisting clients with design-around efforts, patent reexamination, and patent litigation support.
Mr. Shariff was first Chief Patent Counsel of Ener1, Inc., a publicly traded (NASDAQ:HEV) energy technology company that develops compact, lithium-ion powered battery solutions for the transportation, grid energy storage and consumer markets and develops commercial fuel cell products through its EnerFuel subsidiary and nanotechnology-based materials and manufacturing processes through its NanoEner subsidiary. At Ener1, Inc., Mr. Shariff drafted and prosecuted numerous breakthrough patents related no nanotechnology, lithium ion technology, and solar technology.
During his professional career Mr. Shariff represented and successfully prosecuted hundreds of patents (US and foreign) for many of his clients including Whitesell International, TDK, Behr Systems, Durr Systems, Durr Ecoclean, Enerize, and many other large and small companies, individual inventors and businessman.
Inventa Capital is a unique tool created by Mr. Shariff after practicing with one of the major Midwest law firms and working in-house. Mr. Shariff discovered what services typical law firms don’t provide to their client and what prevents corporate researchers and engineers from thinking more creatively to come up with breakthrough technologies/inventions to control the market. Inventa Capital is a solution to these problems with unique combination of professional skills provided for businesses ready to turn innovations into capital and became leaders in the market.
