He earned his J.D. cum laude from Indiana University Maurer School of Law in Bloomington, where he was president of the Intellectual Property Association. While at UE, he was selected to the Pi Tau Sigma mechanical engineering honor society and served as ombudsman for the student government association. As an engineering student, Giesting co-invented a wheelchair design for which he holds a patent.
Giesting’s current practice focuses on patent preparation and patent prosecution. He also counsels clients on foreign patent protection, patent infringement and invalidity, and various other intellectual property matters.
