Much of Dyer’s practice focuses on patent procurement within software and related technologies.

Dyer says he brings a comprehensive approach to his practice, navigating property law to provide insights and solutions for his clients.

Prior to joining Verrill, Dyer was a patent attorney at several law firms, including Schwegman Lundberg & Woessner, a prominent IP boutique law firm in Minnesota, and Pierce Atwood, a general practice firm based in Portland.

During his time at these law firms, he worked with clients to conceptualize, develop and patent groundbreaking inventions. 

Dyer has also held many positions as a software engineer at companies including Texas Instruments, Thomson Reuters and Target Corp.

The Harpswell resident received his bachelor's degree from the University of Arizona, his master’s degree from Harvard University, and a J.D. from the Mitchell Hamline School of Law.

Verrill, a full-service law firm with roots going back to 1862, employs around 148 attorneys and has seven offices across the Northeast.

Verrill ranks No. 5 among Maine’s largest law firms, according to the 2024 Mainebiz Book of Lists. That ranking is based on the number of Maine-based attorneys.
