Chambliss, Bahner & Stophel is broadening its intellectual property practice with the addition of Paul Forsyth. Forsyth, a licensed patent attorney with nearly a decade of experience, will counsel clients on intellectual property matters, including patents, trademarks, copyrights, licensing, and trade secrets.

Forsyth has experience in working with companies of all sizes, from startups to international corporations. With a background in chemistry, Forsyth has worked with a variety of industries, including manufacturing, construction, medical device, and food and beverage.

“Paul provides more depth to our IP team, particularly in the patent area,” said Mike St. Charles, the firm’s managing shareholder. “We’re fortunate to have a lawyer with his talents residing in Chattanooga.”

Prior to joining Chambliss, Forsyth practiced at Pitts & Lake, an intellectual property firm in Knoxville. He received his law degree from the University of Tennessee and undergraduate degree in chemistry from Duke University with a certification from the American Chemical Society. Forsyth is admitted to practice law in Tennessee, before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, and before the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Tennessee.
