About me

My experience includes a wide range of complex matters. I have agressively represented clients at trial (jury and non-jury), private mediations, and arbitrations. The areas of law I have practiced include: intellectual property, civil RICO, business disputes, shareholder derivative actions, commercial, construction, insurance, Lanham, trademarks, copyrights, rights to publicity, bankruptcy (creditor), employment discrimination, breach of fiduciary duty, and trade secrets.

I have assisted clients with issues including business formation; business transactions; trademarks; copyrights; contract drafting and review; intellectual property licensing; e-business agreements; and the legal aspects of purchasing and selling businesses, real estate, and personal property.

Outside of the office I enjoy the outdoors, hunting, fly fishing, camping, hiking, climbing, mountian biking, and making wine.
