Vlad Diaconu

Patent Analyst

Vlad joined the Han Santos team as a patent analyst in 2014. His practice focuses on guiding wireless telecommunications and mechanical device patent applications from start to finish.

Before entering the patent field, Vlad spent 20 years in engineering and design. His expansive technical experience ranges in scope and bridges many disciplines.

Vlad began his career designing and building wireless telecommunication systems and networks all over the world. He is experienced at determining antenna Radio Frequency propagation (RFP). He performed structural studies and executed designs on existing structures for equipment installation. He also implemented wireless backhaul designs as well as completed evaluations for non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation.

Additionally, Vlad spent several years designing mechanical systems for the defense and aerospace industry. His work centered on hydraulic, material handling and manufacturing systems.

This level of engineering and design ability allows Vlad to effortlessly navigate complex issues within systems and devices to ensure patent viability. He believes that the key to successful patent filing and prosecution is working with counsel that have a deep understanding of the technology to begin with.
