About me

My business litigation practice includes matters in both federal and state courts involving a wide range of complex issues relating to contracts, employment, intellectual property, construction and others.


I am also a registered patent attorney. I often counsel clients on proactive ways to protect and manage their business information assets, including patents, trademarks, trade secrets and other proprietary information, and copyrights.
