Leron Vandsburger focuses his practice on patent prosecution and counseling in the areas of materials, engineering, and electronics. Representative technology experience includes semiconductor processing, AI/machine learning, materials chemistry, optics, petrochemical engineering, videogame systems, AR/user interfaces, energy generation, and telecommunications. As a summer associate while in law school, Leron drafted and prosecuted patents in the areas of semiconductor manufacturing and characterization, augmented reality devices and optics, and food processing.
Prior to going to law school, Leron was a postdoctoral research fellow in plasma physics at the Université de Montréal and a postdoctoral research associate in materials science at the University of Washington in Seattle. His research involved developing new nanostructured carbon materials with tailored chemistry for light emission and non-thermal plasma spectroscopy. Leron completed a Ph.D. in chemical engineering at McGill University. His doctoral research explored interactions between carbon nanostructures and plasma-generated species in the presence of electric fields, applicable to semiconductor processing systems and image sensor technology.
Leron currently serves as the treasurer for the Washington Lawyers for the Arts, an organization dedicated to supporting the works of artists and arts organizations in Washington state. He is also the coordinator for the organization’s Legal Advice Week Clinic and Seattle University School of Law Arts Law Clinic. Leron speaks Hebrew and French fluently.
