Intellectual Property is often a business's most valuable asset. Our goal: Protect those assets. Our experience and understanding of the law, along with its undeniable and plentiful loopholes, will be fully utilized to attempt to eliminate all practical risks facing our clients and to put them in a position of strength with respect to their assets.
Our goal is to help our clients avoid litigation by proactively evaluating risks and eliminating them where practical. However, sometimes there is a need to enforce IP rights or defend attacks on our clients' rights or use of IP. Our team of experienced litigators is committed to work hard to resolve matters effectively and efficiently for our clients, generally only using litigation as a last resort.
My Client Commitment:
Represent our clients' interests and needs zealously and to the best of my ability;
Be responsive and available to our clients as needed by promptly responding to telephone calls and emails;
Provide legal services under a reasonable and practical billing structure that is actually commiserate with my experience and value; and,
