My company, a Fortune 200 biotech company, hired Andrew not only for his specialized expertise in both patent litigation and patent procurement, but also for his advanced technical knowledge. After retaining him, Andrew quickly and thoroughly grasped our complex technology that combined life sciences, engineering, and material sciences. He then analyzed multiple competitor patents and evaluated their potential impact on this technology. We were pleased when Andrew provided us with clear, detailed, and useful opinions on these patents, thus providing guidance for our future research and business efforts. Importantly, Andrew delivered these opinions within a tight budget and time-frame, all without compromising quality.
As in-house counsel, I was Andrew’s primary client for this matter. I believe Andrew’s experience, skill, and knowledge, both in the technical and legal domains, were critical in delivering this high quality of work product. Moreover, Andrew was able to work seamlessly with members of the legal team at various levels, as well as with the responsible business executive. Our team was very impressed with Andrew’s work, and I would unequivocally recommend Andrew to others for all manner of patent-related work.

I worked with Andrew on patent litigation defending several large well-known companies. I found Andrew’s work to be efficient and effective. Plus, he is a pleasure to work with. Now, I am in-house intellectual property counsel. I have recommended that we hire Andrew for at least one litigation matter and would not hesitate to recommend him to my company or other companies looking to hire an intellectual property litigator.

Andrew and I worked at the same firm on patent litigation for a number years. Andrew is a highly skilled patent lawyer and a consummate professional. I remember him coming up with novel legal theories and strategies that most lawyers would miss. He also has an approachable personality that makes him easy to work with. I endorse Andrew and would be glad to recommend him to individuals and companies looking for a patent attorney.
