George Washington University Law School
I am a patent litigator, trial attorney, and an IP counselor who represents technology companies throughout the country. My clients are in a variety of industries, including computer software and hardware, mobile devices, e-commerce, electronics, online media, medical devices, and automotive systems. I have represented some of the largest companies in the world, but also represent several small startups and medium-size companies.
Major litigation victories include successfully defending a software company in the second largest patent infringement case in history, successfully defending a handset manufacturer in its first trial at the International Trade Commission, and two cases where I obtained jury verdicts of infringement, validity, willful infringement and damages (and subsequently obtained attorneys’ fees and permanent injunctions). Recently, I also obtained a stipulated judgment of noninfringement for my two streaming media clients in the District of Delaware, the result of successfully arguing at a claim construction hearing. I also recently obtained a dismissal with prejudice of all patent claims asserted against my golf club manufacturer client in the Eastern District of Texas, without my client paying anything to the plaintiff. I also litigate trademark, trade dress, trade secret and copyright cases, and advise technology companies on non-litigation intellectual property matters. I counsel clients on patent monetization issues, assisting those companies in determining the best strategy for getting the most from their intellectual property.
I am office managing partner of Perkins Coie, San Diego.
I am a member of the San Diego County Bar Association and American Bar Association.
