About me

Greg Wesner focuses his practice on patent, trademark, and other intellectual property litigation and related counseling.  Greg’s patent litigation experience includes work with pharmaceuticals and medical devices, laser telemetry, wireless infrastructure technology, high-speed scanning radio technology, algorithms for video and image compression, as well as sports equipment and hand tool designs.  He also has substantial experience litigating trademark and Internet and technology law cases.  Greg was involved in the first lawsuit ever brought under the anti-circumvention provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), where his client defeated an effort to enjoin distribution of its file conversion software.  He also counsels clients in IP matters, including patent due diligence and freedom to operate, brand development and enforcement, and trade secrets protection.
