"David is a consummate legal professional with whom I was able to collaborate while at Algenol. David's sharp, technical mind coupled with his skilled intellectual property know-how established him as an invaluable resource on a number of projects and efforts, including IP strategy planning, domestic and international patent filings, and contract writing and review. He is an absolute pleasure to work with, and I hope to have the opportunity to do so again."

"I had the pleasure of working with David as an internal client at Algenol Biotech LLC. David was always very responsive to requests for drafting of various legal agreements and for providing opinions on intellectual property matters. He was also proactive in regards to identifying potential IP issues that might impact our IP strategy and worked diligently to resolve such issues. He provided insights from both a technical and legal perspective that helped to shape Algenol’s patenting strategy. David is pleasant to work with and is exceedingly professional in all his interactions, both internally and with external entities. I recommend David to anyone who has a need for an insightful, technically competent IP attorney."
