About me

As an intellectual property attorney with industry experience in technology, I provide a unique understanding of how intellectual
property assets influence business. Operating as a client's general
counsel, this involves strategically counselling clients on matters
involving the evaluation, acquisition, development and protection of
intellectual property rights.  From acquiring and maintaining intellectual property rights, creatively leveraging such assets
through domestic and international licensing and technology transfer, to
litigating such rights in court, my team and I bring large firm experience to bear with the economics of a smaller firm environment.  I am also an experienced internet, media &
entertainment lawyer, with a primary focus on representing studios, 
production companies, distributors and content providers in creating, protecting and distributing
entertainment content in the digital domain.
