My focus is intellectual property litigation and counseling, general commercial litigation, telecommunications, and securities and private equity-related litigation. I've litigated a wide range of cases on issues of concern to intellectual property owners and users including: international and domestic copyright infringement; patent and design patent infringement; trade secret disputes; trademark and trade dress infringement; breaches of entertainment industry contracts; counterfeiting; and false advertising.
My commercial litigation experience includes representing telecommunications providers in inter-carrier disputes; representing investor funds, directors and companies in lawsuits involving fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, and violation of federal and state regulations; representing insurance industry participants and regulators; representing commercial real estate developers and investors; and representing vendors and purchasers in cases involving failed computer systems.
I write and lecture frequently on copyright law. I am the co-author of "Substantial Similarity In Copyright Law" (PLI 2003-2009 (available for Kindle download at amazon.com)), a treatise devoted to the analysis of the ways in which courts compare works in copyright infringement cases. I was part of the group that drafted the ABA model jury instructions for copyright infringement cases (published spring 2008). My speaking engagements include appearances before the Copyright Society of the U.S.A. Copyright Society of the South, Licensing Executives Society and the Fairfield County Bar Association.
My goal is to expand my base of Connecticut-located and national business clients and the range of intellectual property and commercial litigation and counseling services with which they trust me.
