My legal experience includes developing patent portfolios for early stage companies, conducting due diligence investigations for acquisition and licensing, conducting clearance and freedom-to-operate opinions for product development and commercialization, conducting patentability searches and opinions on new technologies, and conducting general intellectual property litigation. I advise and counsel clients IP protection/enforcement strategy and on general intellectual property matters to develop a comprehensive and cost-effective intellectual property strategy to be competitive in the marketplace.

I review and prepare license agreements, technology agreements, confidential and consulting transactions, clinical trial applications, and I advise clients on the same.

I conduct IP litigation; I draft cease & desist letters; I prepare & analyze claim charts; I conduct mediations and settlement conferences.

I oversee, manage, and train associate attorneys, law clerks, and summer interns, and conduct general administrative duties and client development strategies

Excellent resource
Peter is extremely responsive with a very fast turnaround time. Have worked with him for multiple years and have been very happy with his services! Definitely take an introductory meeting with him if you are looking for IP services.

Great lawyer, and a nice guy too...
Peter and his team have done a great job building and managing our patent portfolio. He has never missed a deadline and has always done an excellent job taking our inventions and turning them into well defined, well managed patent applications that are defendable and as broad as they can be. He's always available for a call to talk through a difficult concept, and always there to work with us when we need it. As a startup company, budgeting is key for IP, and Peter is always willing to send projections of costs for the next year based on filing dates, maintenance fees, and the time required to get the work done. I would highly recommend working with Peter.

Highly Recommend
We have been working with Peter since early 2013 and have found him to be extremely professional, knowledgeable and readily accessible with all of our needs. I rely on him to keep on top of all date sensitive filings, responses, etc and he never fails! This is critical in the life of patents. I highly recommend Peter.

Patent filing for a startup
Peter helped us prepare and file our patent application. We are a medical device startup and our application required an in depth understanding of scientific and technical nuances. Peter was able to quickly gain an understanding the intricacies of our technology and put together our application within the budgetary constraints of a startup. We are very happy with the work he did and highly recommend him.

Excellent Patent Attorney
I have worked with Peter for about 10 years - he is excellent on all sides. First, he is easy to work with, a quick study on technical issues, knows how to interact with examiners and can get claims allowed. We are a small company that has had struggles - Peter has worked with us each step of the way. I have worked with many patent attorneys over the years - Peter is simply the best - I recommend him highly.
