Alek Szecsy, Registered Patent Attorney and Of Counsel at Bond observes that: “The future of the energy storage industry appears to be quite bright.”
As a graduate student and as a postdoctoral researcher Dr. Szecsy studied electron transfer reactions which may relate to certain types of batteries. Currently, as a patent attorney, his knowledge and skill in the chemical and material sciences is often invaluable in understanding and defining the scope of a technological advance for which intellectual property, (i.e., typically patent) protection may be desirable. Dr. Szecsy has particularly enjoyed the opportunity to assist in advancing the state of knowledge in the energy storage industry through collegial contact, communication and collaboration with many dedicated professionals of various disciplines.
