Practice areas

After graduating from Duke Law School, I clerked for the Hon. Monroe G. McKay, Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit in Salt Lake City, UT.  After my clerkship, I spent 3 and a half years as a commercial litigator in the Honors Program at the U.S. Department of Justice, in Washington, DC.  I then moved into private practice at the large national firm, Morgan Lewis, where I focused on appellate and Supreme Court practice, commercial litigation, and trademark litigation.  After two years, I returned to my roots in Boston and joined Foley Hoag, a major Boston law firm.  There, I practiced primarily in the area of patent litigation, trademark litigation, and computer and Internet law.  In June 2007, I decided to leave Foley Hoag and open my own practice.  I now focus on business litigation, intellectual property, and appellate litigation.  I draw upon my years of practice for the federal government and large law firms to provide big firm expertise and sophistication to companies and individuals with business-related disputes, at a more affordable price.

Lawsuits and disputes Attorney | Apr 08
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I know Mitch from a lawyers discussion group. Mitch has distinguished himself with his intelligence and high integrity. He's also shown himself to be a witty, personable and easygoing individual - something which distinguishes him from most of his peers at the bar. I endorse this lawyer's work."
Litigation Attorney | Apr 08
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"In late 2007, I worked with Mitch on a petition for certiorari to the United States Supreme Court in a labor law case. I found him to be very thoughtful and creative in developing an argument whose purpose was not to win the case, but to convince the Supreme Court that the case was "certworthy." Accordingly, I highly recommend Mitch for his skills in litigation and appellate strategy."
