Dr. Larry Williams serves in the firm's Chemical/Materials Sciences and Biotech Practice Groups.

Larry's technical background is in targeted drug design, natural product synthesis, and synthesis and characterization of polymeric systems for energy generation and storage. As a patent attorney, Larry has diligently represented his clients' interests in technical areas ranging from plant-sized chemical reactor systems to novel compounds for OLEDs to advanced polymeric systems for applications such as cosmetics, automotive interiors, diapers, and fuel cells. Larry joined Wood, Herron & Evans in 2014 after gaining valuable experience in both general practice and IP-centric law firms.
