Jim has been our legal advisor on intellectual property matters for several years. He has a wonderful ability to explain complex matters very simply and logically and helped guide us through the various options our company had related to our intellectual property portfolio. Jim has been a terrific partner and has worked with us both on strategy and cost management. I strongly endorse Jim for anyone looking for legal counsel in this area.

I have been a client of Jim's now at two different companies, and have consistently found him to be excellent. He is knowledgeable, resourceful, responsive, and efficient. In my first work with Jim, his detailed knowledge of the patent process enabled us to get our patent issued after it had been rejected and stalled while we were using another (bigger) firm. Since then we have worked with him patent-related litigation and use Jim for all of our IP-related work.

We are so appreciative of all the legal help that Jim has provided. Highly recommend his services as he goes above and beyond other lawyers we considered.
Relationship: Worked together on matter
Jim and I have worked on many many matters together for over 10 years. I would highly recommend Jim for any matter in intellectual property, particularly litigation and counseling. Jim also has a great understanding of the nuances of Delaware practice, and when coupled with his intellectual property experience makes him an ideal local counsel for IP litigation in Delaware - - much more value added that other local counsel I have worked with. High recommended.
