Tom Moses considers himself to be an adventurer who happens to be an attorney. Over the years, he has backpacked through Denali, snowboarded the steep slopes of the Rocky Mountains, been on nighttime scuba dives on the Great Barrier Reef, Grand Cayman and St. Lucia, and has raced stock cars around the Atlanta Motor Speedway. For awhile, Tom ran a summer 4-wheeling wilderness tour business in Seldovia, Alaska. He received a BS degree in chemistry from Wofford College, and a JD from the USC School of Law. Tom’s legal career began in a less-than-illustrious fashion as his first paycheck bounced. Since then, however, he has written, filed and prosecuted hundreds of US patents (including a couple of his own) and thousands of US trademark registrations. He has argued cases at the US Patent and Trademark Office, the European Patent Office, SC State and Federal Courts, the SC Supreme Court, and even a trademark dispute at the SC Realtors Commission. His clients range from individual inventors to small businesses and Fortune 500 companies. One of his clients is a local sushi restaurant, and they were kind enough to name a sushi roll after him: The Holy Moses. According to Tom, it is delicious, and he is very proud of that.
