About me

For two decades, I have advocated for my clients in intellectual property and complex business litigation, including as a first chair trial attorney, in addition to providing strategic advice and counseling.  Spanning all forms of IP (patent, trademark, copyright, trade secrets and contracts) and a variety of industries, my litigation and trial experience positions me to see how different decisions or processes could have been made to head off or better position the case for litigation.


I use this insight to help my clients proactively manage competitive risk, maximize value of IP, and best position their IP for enforcement.  Understanding the life cycle – and momentum – of litigation, I provide independent litigation “sanity checks” and settlement opportunity evaluations, to identify productive business solutions to resolve litigation while your litigation counsel remains focused on best positioning your case for trial. 


At its core, HIPLegal is a team, both within our firm and in partnership with our clients.  By understanding our clients’ business and strategy, and leveraging our collective, complementary expertise, we ensure the strategies we design and implement align with our clients' business values and anticipate future issues.  Upon this foundation, we help maximize our clients’ opportunities in protecting, valuing, licensing and maximizing their IP.
