I think I caught my sense of entrepreneurship from my parents, and watching them operate their small jewelry business inspired me to start my own business. I keenly felt that spirit and desire to do something on my own, and create something from the ground up, with full knowledge of the amount of sheer effort required. When I started my own fashion business, I learned firsthand how valuable it is to have someone understand your business from a technical perspective, to have that sounding board and a sympathetic ear. Now, I use my legal skills to be that sounding board for my clients, to combine my technical and business experience to help them succeed.
Outside of work, I love sports of all kinds, from skiing and snowboarding, to surfing, and I currently compete in Brazilian jiujitsu. I enjoy the feeling of challenging myself.
I represent clients in transactions involving intellectual property assets, including mergers and acquisitions, licensing agreements and development agreements.

I also have experience representing clients in data security and privacy matters.
I represent clients in intellectual property matters, including trademark and copyright prosecution and enforcement, as well as portfolio management and business strategy. I also have experience in patent prosecution, preparing and prosecuting patent applications in the U.S., and under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) in various technology areas including immunology, pharmaceuticals, and bioinformatics.
