Over the past 25 years, I have dedicated my practice to intellectual property law.  I litigate and prosecute patents and trademarks and counsel clients on a variety of intellectual property issues, both domestic and international.  As a trial attorney, my emphasis is on Hatch-Waxman ANDA litigation arising between brand and generic drug manufacturers.  My peers have awarded me an AV Preeminent rating through Martindale Hubbell.

Felt Like a Valued Client
Let me preface this review by saying that I am neither wealthy nor a Very Important Person. But Tedd made me feel like one. He responded quickly to my questions and worked efficiently to get the job done. He also took his time to explain everything to me and get to know me as a client. I felt like he was on my side throughout the whole process. T's crossed and I's dotted all the way. In summary: He's just a really nice person who does a good job. What more could one want?
