I focus on litigating and resolving intellectual property disputes. I also help clients strategically manage and enforce their trademark portfolios, and regularly advise them on Internet-related issues.
I frequently speak at industry events on a variety of IP-related topics.
I've been lead trial counsel in dozens of jury and bench trials and arbitrations across the country. I've also argued numerous appeals, and have obtained and defeated injunctions in courts across the country. I represent clients in UDRP proceedings and in matters before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board and the Federal Trade Commission. I routinely advise clients on copyright matters, including disputes over source code and DMCA issues. I work closely with clients to devise appropriate alternative fee arrangements for handling their litigation matters.
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 such as cybersquatting, phishing, framing, keyword advertising, drafting and modifying website terms and conditions, and website 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 in 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.
