About me

I have over 20 years experience as an Intellectual Property attorney protecting the trademarks, logos, slogans and the copyrights in original literary (including software), musical, dramatic, pictorial, graphic and sculptural, audiovisual, and architectural works conceived and used in their businesses by my clients.


There is nothing more exciting than to be a part of a client's team and focusing on the best strategy going forward to protect and defend that which makes the client's ideas, designs and products and approach to business different and distinguished from his or her competitors. Whether it's a classic or modern rug or wallpaper design, an ingenious software application, or any of the myriad possibilities in today's fast-paced and constantly changing economic, cultural and technological landscape, the client's ingenuity provides the spark, I do my part to help keep it alive.


As an experienced IP attorney, I have also litigated many cases concerning trademarks and copyrights, trade secrets and trade dress and unfair competition and have assisted in complex patent litigation. Whether you need offense or defense, I can help.

I can trace my passion for IP law to my prior career in music and entertainment. It has given me an appreciation for the hard work and the blood, sweat and tears of clients who crystalize their individual dreams and talents to make a business go. My clients know they can call on me at every step of the way.
