Intellectual Property and Technology Attorney
CA, NY, Patent Bar
I’ve worked in patent law for over 16 years and advised clients as large as Apple and as small as solo inventors on how to obtain, enforce, litigate and defend against patents. I bring my clients the knowledge and experience they need to take the subtle actions that are often necessary to prevail.

"When I was in house as head of the legal department, Andrew defended a multi-party patent litigation and got a defense judgment in our favor and an award of attorney’s fees. The award was upheld on appeal. While the plaintiff claimed not to be able to pay the award of attorneys’ fees, Andrew’s persistence resulted in a significant payment. Andrew is very knowledgeable, pragmatic and cost effective. I have had occasion since that case to work with him on other matters and haven’t hesitated in referring other business colleagues and attorneys to him."

"My company, a Fortune 200 biotech company, hired Andrew not only for his specialized expertise in both patent litigation and patent procurement, but also for his advanced technical knowledge. After retaining him, Andrew quickly and thoroughly grasped our complex technology that combined life sciences, engineering, and material sciences. He then analyzed multiple competitor patents and evaluated their potential impact on this technology. We were pleased when Andrew provided us with clear, detailed, and useful opinions on these patents, thus providing guidance for our future research and business efforts. Importantly, Andrew delivered these opinions within a tight budget and time-frame, all without compromising quality. As in-house counsel, I was Andrew’s primary client for this matter. I believe Andrew’s experience, skill, and knowledge, both in the technical and legal domains, were critical in delivering this high quality of work product. Moreover, Andrew was able to work seamlessly with members of the legal team at various levels, as well as with the responsible business executive. Our team was very impressed with Andrew’s work, and I would unequivocally recommend Andrew to others for all manner of patent-related work."
