About
I focus on helping growing companies secure appropriate and high-quality intellectual property rights. I leverage legal expertise drawn from years of practice at one of the nation's largest firms and prominent IP boutiques, as well as startup business acumen developed co-founding and helping lead a company from incorporation through acquisition. It's expert legal advice that makes sense for a growing business.

"Quiet amazing. It's hard to find lawyers that genuinely understand your venture and not perceive you as a pile of money or a bunch of claims and billing hours. Brad was very keen on understanding the application, and drafting an accurate response accordingly."
