  • B Douglas Robbins

    Mr. Overhauser is an exceptional attorney. He has a natural strategic sensibility in the context of litigation that allows him to not only solve the problems at hand but to understand how any given move or counter-move will impact ultimate decisions on motions, or at trial. Some lawyers pride themselves on fighting each and every issue to the death as if it were a matter of ego and pride. Overhauser understands that litigation is a chess game where one needs to see multiple moves ahead and where ego can often cloud one's better judgment. I have no reservations in saying that Mr. Overhauser is star lawyer for complex business and intellectual property matters.
