Finding creative ways to help clients

Let me work with your team to identify and execute creative IP strategies.

Trial, litigation, IP strategies,  mediation.


Local Counsel

Developing effective strategies requires looking several moves ahead. When you know the jurisdiction and the Court, you can better predict outcomes and develop better strategies.

Hearing strategies

After attending dozens of Judge Albright's Markman and discovery hearings, I have developed effective strategies that I can share with clients.

Trial Strategies

I have attended significant portions of most of Judge Albright's patent trials (jury selection, opening statements, many witnesses, and closing arguments), and have had three trials before Judge Albright. I can provide your team with helpful insights.

Communicating Ideas

Trials and hearings are largely about persuasion and effectively communicating ideas. Knowing your audience is key. Sometimes an outside perspective helps. I can help your team develop effective communication strategies for hearings and trials.

IP Protection Strategies

I have spent over 30 years helping clients protect their IP. Let me put my experience to work for you. Let's be creative.


As an IP litigator for over 30 years, I have seen all types of disputes, and resolved many of them creatively. I am a quick study, I roll up my sleeves, and bring energy to the process. Let me help you resolve your disputes.

About me

I have over 30 years experience in all aspects of Intellectual Property.  From very large patent lawsuits, to trademark and copyright disputes, to contentious trade secret cases, to complex licensing deals, to creative IP business strategies.  I have enjoyed working on a variety of technologies, including semiconductor, oil & gas, computer hardware, software, telecom, medical devices, among several others.

Clients say I am creative, strategic, and tenacious.

I enjoy simplifying issues, and like to communicate visually.

I am very lucky to have a wonderful wife and three grown boys.  In my spare time I enjoy the outdoors, sailing, triathlons, skydiving, and being a CASA volunteer.
