Adam Diament, J.D., Ph.D.
Adam Diament has been a practicing patent attorney since 2008. He focuses his work on intellectual property matters for U.S. and international clients in the areas of patents, trademarks, trade dress, copyrights, and trade secrets. He has secured patents in numerous fields, such as devices in the mechanical, electrical, optical, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, construction, home appliance, fashion, exercise, firearm, automotive, and biomedical arts. Prior to opening his own practice, he was actively involved in patent and trademark litigation in the consumer goods and clothing industries at an IP boutique firm in Beverly Hills.
During law school Adam Diament was a judicial extern to the Honorable Suzanne H. Segal at the Central District of California, and also worked as a patent extern at NuVasive, Inc., a San Diego, California based medical device company developing spinal implant devices.
Before attending law school, Dr. Diament earned his Ph.D. in Genetics from the University of California, Davis, where his researched concentrated on the genetic and environmental causes of obesity and other metabolic disorders. After his Ph.D., he completed a post-doctoral fellowship at UCLA in nephrology, focusing on the genetics of polycystic kidney disease. For his undergraduate studies at the University of California, Berkeley, he double majored in Molecular and Cell Biology, and Religious Studies. He also participated in gene mapping research as part of the Human Genome Project at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Cedars Sinai Medical Center. He is an author of nine peer-reviewed publications on the genetics of obesity.
Dr. Diament volunteers as a scientific judge and moderator at the National Science Bowl, a high school science competition and enjoys genealogical research and playing Scrabble.
