Ryan Abbott is an experienced trial and appellate attorney, having appeared as an advocate and lead counsel in numerous state and federal courts as well as in foreign courts and arbitration proceedings. Ryan most famously managed a major international litigation and prosecution effort involving the first patent applications to disclose inventions generated by an artificial intelligence without a traditional human inventor (“AI-Generated Inventions”). The applications, filed in seventeen jurisdictions, list the AI as the inventor, and the human owner of the AI, whom Ryan represents, as the patent owner. On June 28, 2021, the Times of London reported that this effort successfully resulted in the world’s first patent for an AI-Generated Invention in South Africa. Ryan is directly responsible for the litigation in the US and UK (together with Williams Powell in the UK) and managing the other actions.
