Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Jim and I have worked closely together on several intellectual property matters, and he consistently provides his clients smart, efficient strategies to resolve their disputes without over-litigating the case. He also works closely with clients to understand their needs and anticipate any concerns that may arise from developments in litigation. I would highly recommend Jim for intellectual property disputes, including litigation involving patents and trademarks."

In all of those matters, I have found Mr. Duby's experience and work product to be excellent, and his character and reputation to be of the highest quality. With utmost confidence, I would recommend and endorse Mr. Duby."
