About
I have been an intellectual property litigator and counselor for 25 years, including 17 years as a Partner at one of the nation's leading IP firms (Orrick). I recently downsized my practice to service small- and mid-cap businesses.

My practice focuses on complex intellectual property matters, including litigation, freedom-to-operate analyses, IPRs and counseling on potential litigation.

I advise companies on IP licensing, on the management of their IP portfolios, and on IP in the M&A context.

I have two degrees from M.I.T. (Chemical Engineering and Philosophy) and a law degree from Columbia, graduating with honors from both.
