How can I help?

Intellectual Property and Commercial Litigation

Many litigators will bill you for the sake of billing, without actually solving your problem. My approach is different. Without huge overhead to support, I can customize a dispute resolution strategy that drives your business forward and protects your rights.

I’ve been to trial six times to resolve IP disputes, and I’ve resolved countless other commercial matters in state and federal courts across the country. I know the risks of this path and I can guide you through it.

Utility and Design Patent Protection

Your ideas are the backbone of your business. I’ve prosecuted patents covering consumer products, outdoor recreation equipment, construction tools, and medical devices. I love learning about new technologies, and I’m looking forward to hearing about yours.

Trademark Protection and Counseling

Your brand includes your name, logo, slogans, and “look and feel” of whatever customers see. If you don’t protect your brand through careful preparation and enforcement, you could lose valuable rights. Let’s make sure that doesn’t happen. I’ve prosecuted trademarks in the consumer products, medical technology, manufacturing, and fitness industries; and I’m happy to help in yours too.

Entertainment Contracts

As a gigging musician and former venue owner, I know several sides of the music business. Additionally, I’ve drafted and negotiated a range of commercial contracts including non-disclosure agreements, settlements, and employment contracts for inventors, game developers, and artists. Moreover, I’ve resolved several disputes that hinged the tiniest of details in agreements, so I can help you avoid such pitfalls.

Technology/IP Licensing

You have a great idea, and you figured out how to secure your intellectual property rights. Now you may want to license it to others and enjoy the fruits of your labor. I’ve helped engineers, inventors, gaming companies , and entrepreneurs develop, license, sell, and maintain ownership over their creations throughout my career.
