Profile

Anthony Amert is an associate in the Intellectual Property and Data Privacy and Security practices at Chamberlain Hrdlicka.  Anthony’s prior engineering experience and legal insight make him an invaluable resource for businesses that wish to pursue and leverage intellectual property as well as manage data valuable to their businesses.

Thanks to his hands-on engineering experience, Anthony is intimately familiar with state-of-the-art data storage technologies, distributed computing technologies, computer architectures, and all aspects of software development, deployment, and management.  He leverages his technical knowledge in these areas to obtain superior patent coverage while efficiently managing cost for his clients.  Anthony has helped his clients obtain hundreds of utility patents as well as other types of intellectual property assets including design patents, federal and state trademark registrations, and federal copyright registrations

As data has become an integral factor to business success, companies recognize their legal counsel need to be both legally and technically savvy to help them manage the ever-changing landscape of data regulation and compliance. Merely considering the legal regulatory framework surrounding data is no longer sufficient to address modern data challenges faced by businesses.  Understanding how data is stored in varying computer architectures and systems is critical to identifying the actions that need to be taken and policies that need to be put in place for businesses to manage and protect their data.

Anthony is a trusted partner to businesses trying to navigate these challenging waters.  His data storage technology and software knowledge allow him to efficiently work with both management and information technology professionals of businesses to address data management challenges and breach incident responses.  Anthony provides his clients with actionable plans to manage, protect, and address data breaches that are tailored to the unique data and storage technology employed by each business.
