The firm’s attorneys assist clients with patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secret protection, IP licensing, infringement litigation, and related intellectual property matters.
Rick was born in Hawaii, attended high school there, was raised in Minnesota, and now divides his time between Honolulu and Perrysburg, Ohio. He earned a BA degree in Psychology with honors from Macalester College, and a Juris Doctor degree, cum laude, from William Mitchell, both in Minnesota. While in law school, he clerked for the Public Defender’s office, for the Judicial Planning Committee of the Minnesota Supreme Court, and for the Chief Judge of Minnesota’s First Judicial District. Prior to entering law school, Rick was a founder and principal partner in Collins Communications Systems Company, located in the Twin Cities.
He has a technical background in telecommunications systems, software, and computer networks. His primary practice areas include trademarks, licensing, technology transfer agreements, copyright, and intellectual property matters relating to the internet. Rick has also served as an adjunct faculty member at the University of Toledo College of Law.
Prior to forming Fraser Clemens Martin & Miller, Rick was a partner in another Toledo-based patent law firm. Before that he was an attorney in the Technology Law Group, and also Director of Administration, at a general practice firm in Toledo, Ohio.
Rick is admitted to practice law in Ohio and Hawaii; in the U.S. District Courts for the Northern District of Ohio and the State of Hawaii; in the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals; and before the U.S. Supreme Court. When not in the firm’s Perrysburg offices, he practices full-time remotely from Honolulu and considers himself very fortunate to be able to do so.
