Conley Rose, P.C., an intellectual property-only law firm is pleased to announce Ryan Jenlink has rejoined the firm as Shareholder and Chair of the firm’s Life Sciences Practice Group.

Ryan has over a decade of experience protecting and maximizing the value of inventions, patents, and other intellectual property (IP) assets for inventors, scientists, biologists, companies, laboratories, and other organizations. 

“We are thrilled to welcome Ryan back to our firm!” says Rodney B. Carroll, Shareholder, Executive Committee member, and Chair of the firm’s Chemical Practice Group. “Ryan started his career at Conley Rose over a decade ago, and the fact that he has rejoined our firm is very gratifying.” 

“Ryan grew up in a farming family, where he honed his strong work ethic and mechanical skills. He is brilliant and talented, yet is a down-to-earth and humble person with considerable capabilities in IP law, especially in the life sciences arena.”

Ryan provides tailored counsel, advice, and representation in all areas of IP law including analyzing and managing IP portfolios, providing legal opinions, preparing and prosecuting patent applications in both the United States (U.S.) and internationally, negotiating IP agreements, and represents clients in post-grant proceedings before the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeal Board.

His practice included working with a wide range of technologies, such as biotechnology; life sciences; genetic engineering; gene therapeutics; pharmaceutical compounds, compositions, and methods; medical devices such as surgical tools and implants; medical treatment regimens; polymer compositions, polymerization methods, and polymerization equipment; catalyst chemistry; telecommunications; and oilfield servicing operations including drilling, stimulation, production, and surface equipment.

Ryan is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma College of Law, and holds dual degrees in cellular and molecular biology and plant and soil science-biotechnology from Oklahoma State University. During law school, he worked for the University of Oklahoma’s Office of Technology Development where he evaluated invention disclosures for patentability, coordinated application filings and prosecution with outside counsel, and developed strategies for monetizing intellectual property assets by licensing university-owned technologies to start-up companies.
