Graham Pechenik

Calyx Law

Founder | Registered Patent Attorney

A registered patent attorney, with degrees in Biochemistry and Cognitive Neuroscience, Graham spent a decade representing Fortune 500 companies in the agricultural, chemical, pharmaceutical, biotech, and technology industries before founding Calyx Law in 2016, the first patent law boutique in California to focus on cannabis and psychedelics. At Calyx Law, Graham has worked with numerous seed and early stage companies to protect their psilocybin-related IP through patent and trademark filings, and to develop IP strategies for the space. Graham also maintains the Psilocybin Patent Tracker in partnership with Psilocybin Alpha. When he’s not helping others with their mushroom-related matters, Graham also grows mushrooms, forages for wild mushrooms, and teaches about mushrooms as a volunteer interpreter at Muir Woods.
