Michael Dalakis

Michael is both an intellectual property attorney and an entrepreneur. In founding Panovia Group, Michael sees the opportunity to share his entrepreneurial passion with the firm’s clients, inspiring them to develop their ideas and talents and take them to market.

As an entrepreneur at heart, in 2003 Michael stepped away from the “corporate world” and co-founded ENEXDI, a DC-area high-end document management company targeting the most discerning clients in the legal and proposal markets. Building a business focused on customer service and a solution-based approach to client matters in a much-maligned industry, Michael helped propel ENEXDI to a multi-million dollar business within 3 years.
Michael entered the field of IP law in 1994 as an electro-mechanical engineer with a small IP law firm in Arlington, VA. From there, for tenure of nearly six years, he served as a patent examiner for the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), examining patent applications in such fields as photography, photolithography, printing, motion pictures, image processing and semiconductor manufacture.

Michael followed his service at the USPTO with over three years of practice at Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease, LLP and Howrey, LLP in Washington DC. At these large firms his work encompassed all facets of intellectual property law for clients ranging from the sole inventor to several Fortune 100 companies.

Michael strongly believes in always approaching life with a work-life balance, taking the time to understand your ever-changing ambitions, both personal and professional, and living towards their fulfillment. Outside of work, Michael spends most of his time experiencing the world with his three young children.
