I focus on litigating and resolving intellectual property disputes. I have confidence in my ability to assess a case and am generally receptive to creative alternative fee arrangements.
I've tried complex cases in courts across the country. I've also argued Markman, summary judgment and injunction hearings in dozens of courts. I represent clients in UDRP proceedings and in matters before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board and the Federal Trade Commission. I advise clients on copyright matters, including disputes over source code, and DMCA issues, software implementation disputes and TCPA and other privacy claims.
I help clients strategically manage and enforce their domestic and international trademark portfolios. I also counsel companies on new product development and advertising/promotion issues.
I frequently advise clients on Internet-related issues and data protection and privacy issues. I have extensive experience in data breach investigations and remediation and led the team that defended NebuAd in a case related to micro-targeted online advertising technology.
Western companies will continue to struggle navigating China's complex IP system and will need the assistance of lawyers with real-world experience. Digital content will continue to be the center of the copyright universe. Litigation financing is having a profound impact on litigation and dispute resolution.
