I use my expertise in both intellectual property law and complex technology to help companies of all sizes effectively protect and manage their creative assets. I am both an experienced litigator and registered patent attorney, and provide a wide range of services, including intellectual property litigation, patent prosecution, portfolio management, licensing, and corporate due diligence. I have a degree in computer engineering, and regularly draw on my real-world knowledge and experience in representing clients in a broad range of information-driven and technology-focused industries, including computer hardware and software, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, emerging technologies, and other areas.
I bring an analytical yet creative approach to handling, and solving, a wide range of issues for my clients. After understanding my clients’ business objectives, I work closely with them to develop cost-effective strategies designed to achieve the best possible results, while minimizing legal expenses. I understand that a client’s intellectual property is key to financial success, and will work tirelessly to protect my client’s innovations. I also enjoy using my technical background and experience to develop a deep understanding of the relevant technology, and then applying that understanding to create the best available outcome for my clients.
I also surround myself with technology outside of work. I’ve developed an interest in 3D printing, drones, and virtual reality, and am active in the IoT and Maker communities. I also enjoy mountaineering, listening to and playing music, and biking.
