My practice focuses on intellectual property litigation and counseling. I work with clients in such diverse fields as electronics, semiconductor manufacturing and development, software, telecommunications, transportation, entertainment, retail and consumer goods, and financial transactions. I have extensive experience in all aspects of federal district court litigation and International Trade Commission (ITC) investigations and trials.
As a registered patent attorney, I also specialize in post-grant proceedings before the United States Patent Office, having served as lead counsel in numerous inter partes review (IPR) proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB).
I also represent foreign parents in international child abduction cases under the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction. I have served as lead counsel in multiple trials resulting in the successful return of illegally retained children to their home countries.
I have been selected six times as a Rising Star by Colorado Super Lawyers (2010 through 2015). I also was named a top patent practitioner in 2013, 2014 and 2015 by IAM Patent 1000 – The World’s Leading Patent Practitioners. I am a former Chair of the Denver Bar Association Community Action Network Committee, which works with many of the city’s nonprofit organizations to serve the needs of the greater Denver community.
Before joining the firm, I completed a federal clerkship with the Honorable Robert C. Jones of the United States District Court for the District of Nevada.
Prior to joining the legal profession, I worked as a software engineer for one of the nation’s largest technology companies, developing cutting-edge design automation tools for VLSI microprocessor design. I also worked as a researcher for the National Institute of Science and Technology in Boulder, Colorado, conducting research into next-generation wireless standards and measurement techniques.
