Early Life and Education
Henry was born in Albany, New York as an impoverished student at a private school. Although poor, he showed great promise as an engineer – reading widely on topics related to literature and science before embarking on an engineering degree program himself and writing scientific articles as a hobby.
After graduating from Harvard, Henry took part in the Grand Tour of Europe as part of its tradition for young men to see more of the world and discover it for themselves. This marked the beginning of his writing career.
He became Washington correspondent for the Boston Daily Advertiser at an extremely difficult period in America due to the beginning of the American Civil War and became involved with gold standard debate, supporting silver over gold-bugs; furthermore he opposed slavery.
Henry’s patented technologies, including toy trains and early science kits, dolls, miniature kitchen and laundry sets, sewing machines and more – appealed to America’s emerging middle class and brought her significant financial returns. She reinvested the proceeds in her process by hiring model makers and draftsmen to assist in creating and refining new products.
Henry was known for her lively public speaking engagements, often charming audiences with her engaging charisma. However, when it came to getting down to business with her work she could become somewhat subdued; often looking down at her pad before pulling out her pencil and starting sketching quickly.
Henry’s practice specializes in patent litigation, such as claim construction and Markman hearings in patent cases, preparing and arguing complex patent appeals before the Federal Circuit and litigating post-grant proceedings at the PTAB. Additionally, Henry provides tax planning, compliance and IRS representation services to closely held companies and high net individuals.
