Derek Fahey, Esquire
I graduated from Florida State University, magna cum laude, with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering. Before attending law school to study patent law, I worked as an engineer for several years. I use my engineering experiences to help protect my clients’ inventions on a daily basis.
While I was a practicing engineer I gained experience as an Industrial Engineer at Boston Scientific, a medical device company, helping develop coronary stents. I was also fortunate enough to work as a Senior Field Engineer with Schlumberger, a global energy services company. While at Schlumberger I worked in different countries all over the world, including Algeria, Canada, France and the United States. As a Senior Field Engineer with Schlumberger, I worked with and troubleshot sophisticated electronic equipment and software programs in very remote areas, including the Sahara Desert.
After leaving Schlumberger, I worked for NextEra Energy, formally Florida Power and Light. At NextEra Energy, I designed electrical infrastructure and facilities for various locations. My engineering experience helps me understand my clients complex mechanical, electrical and software-related inventions.
Allow me to use my experience as an engineer and training as a patent attorney to help you achieve your goals.
