About
As an intellectual property attorney, I’ve helped technology companies and entrepreneurs create strong intellectual property portfolios for over 20 years. These intellectual property portfolios provide a competitive advantage and protect the company’s inventions from being stolen.

My experience includes working with over 1000 business leaders and inventors, from startups to the largest technology companies in the world, including Intel, HP, Microsoft, and eBay.

I also enjoy writing about intellectual property. My articles can be seen in Entrepreneur, The Good Men Project, The Huffington Post, and my own Blog.
