Eric Alspaugh, Of Counsel

Of Counsel

Eric Alspaugh is an experienced transactional attorney specializing in health care and medical technology.

Eric graduated from the University of San Diego in 2004, where he was a member of Phi Delta Phi legal fraternity. He received his Juris Doctor from the University of San Diego and Bachelor of Science in Biology from University of California, San Diego in 1996.

After law school, Eric joined Haight Brown & Bonesteel where he focused on intellectual property, environmental law, and business transactions. While Eric enjoyed his team at Haight Brown & Bonesteel he was sought after to join Biosensors International to manage their intellectual property portfolio and contracts department. Eric helped Biosensors International valuation increase from $700MM to over $4B while listed on the Singapore Stock Exchange. Additionally, Eric managed Biosensors International’s international patent litigation at the Hague successfully with the Court finding non-infringement of the asserted patent.

Eric left Biosensors International to co-found Advanced Bifurcations Systems and Sterling Vascular. Advanced Bifurcation Systems continues to develop its patented drug eluting stent and novel catheter platform in joint venture with Cedars Sinai and a publicly traded US medical device manufacturer. Sterling Vascular finally succumbed to failed financings after three successive sales for less and less money. Eric practiced in boutique IP law firms while continuing to serve as counsel for several international based technology companies and an Orange County technology incubator. Eric has been fortunate to participate in numerous mergers and acquisitions with his companies and now participates selectively with investment banks, private equity, and a couple of family offices performing IP portfolio valuation, due diligence, and corporate compliance functions.

Eric volunteers with numerous non-profits advocating for poor, animal rights, and underserved communities. Eric previously volunteered at the Orange County Bar Association as a Mandatory Fee Arbitrator. Eric has enjoyed service at the Orange County Rescue Mission. Eric has supported the California State Guard and California National Guard while serving as a JAG Officer providing pro bono services every month.

Eric is admitted to practice law in California and before the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Eric is also a licensed real estate broker in California.

Eric and his wife, Virginia reside in Dana Point, CA. In his free time, he enjoys cooking, woodworking, biking and watching his four children’s baseball games and dance recitals.
