Mechanical & Design
We’ve helped Fortune 500 companies, early-stage companies, and startups protect inventions in the mechanical engineering field. Areas of practice include consumer products, clean energy systems, sports equipment including adaptive sports devices, pulp and paper technologies, medical devices, and devices used in the construction industry.
We also have expertise in industrial designs, helping our clients to obtain valuable design patent protection in the U.S., and coordinating with our trusted network of foreign associates to protect their designs internationally.
Equipped with a manufacturing engineering degree and experience working in industry, in addition to her law degree, Celia Leber specializes in providing patent opinions and drafting and prosecuting patent applications pertaining to mechanical devices and engineering processes.
Celia has worked on a variety of medical devices, including asthma treatment devices, intraoral devices, endotracheal tubes, physical therapy devices, and devices for endoscopic surgery.
Celia has also worked on patents in the fields of consumer goods, pulp and paper, automotive and mining, and has extensive patent experience in the clean energy field.
"We have been working with Celia and her team at Leber Law since the founding of our company in late 2013.
Not only have they provided exemplar IP patent expertise and counsel, technical know-how, and organizational oversight in our creation, filings, and management of our entire IP portfolio in several key areas across multiple geographies, but the Leber Law team has stood behind us through our entire startup and product launch trajectory.
This group of people is great to work with and will help in any way they can. As the CEO of an early stage hard-tech company, I can’t speak highly enough of this type of quality support we have received over the years and the deep relationships we have developed with Leber Law."

Staying the course
with a promising startup
Founded in 2013, Onboard Dynamics is helping lead the clean fuel revolution with the introduction of its GoFlo® natural gas compressor.
This mobile platform enables fleet managers and others to lower their fuel costs and carbon emission profiles by simplifying the compression of natural gas. We have worked closely with their team to develop their patent portfolio while being sensitive to the cost constraints of a new enterprise.
