I focus on litigating and resolving IP and technology disputes and privacy-related matters. I have confidence in my ability to accurately assess a case upfront and, where appropriate, will embrace alternative fee arrangements.
I’ve tried complex cases to verdict in courts across the country and in numerous confidential arbitrations. I’ve also argued Markman, summary judgment, and injunction hearings in dozens of courts. I represent clients in administrative proceedings and before the Federal Trade Commission. I advise clients on a host of issues, including IP and privacy.
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 data protection and privacy issues. I have extensive experience in data breach investigations and remediation and led the team that defended NebuAd in an early case involving targeted online advertising technology.

Digital content will continue to be the center of the copyright universe. Third-party financing is having a profound impact on litigation and dispute resolution. Privacy issues will pervade virtually every facet of modern commerce.
