I have worked extensively with Mr. Abbott on a variety of matters ranging from Intellectual Property and litigation to business. During this time, I have found him to be an excellent attorney who is direct in his approach, knowledgeable, hardworking and efficient with resources.
Mr. Abbott has a strong intellectual Property background, particularly in the area of patent law and litigation. He is comprehensive in his risk and liability assessments prior to commencement of a legal action and makes appropriate recommendations. If a resolution is unworkable with an opposing party, he is strategic in his approach to litigation and has a thorough understanding of the technical, procedural and legal aspects of a case. He has a strong ability to focus on the key issues and understands the dynamics of an effective presentation to a court or jury.
I have also worked with Mr. Abbott on patent validity and non-infringement matters. He understands the distinct legal and factual issues and is comprehensive in his understanding of the law and analysis.
Mr. Abbott is equally skilled in business matters. He provides good counsel and advice during the negotiation process and does not expend unnecessary resources on superfluous terms. He is prompt in his communications and provides timely turnaround time on documentation.
I would highly recommend Mr. Abbott to clients.

I have known Eric since 2004 and have had the pleasure of working with Eric in a number of circumstances. Eric is creative in his approach to litigation, which provides a great advantage in an adversarial proceeding. Eric is an honest, thorough and diligent attorney and has successfully handled a number of complex intellectual property and business transaction matters. I have come to rely on Eric's counsel over the years and it has been my pleasure to work with him.

His knowledge and understanding of the intricacies of casino related patents and trademarks is extensive, enabling him to provide well-informed guidance and instruction on all related issues. I highly recommend Eric as an IP attorney.
