Experience

I represent companies nationally and internationally in the protection and enforcement of intellectual property. I thrive on the opportunity to expand the scope of protection available to my clients. I represented the winning plaintiff in the landmark U.S. Supreme court trademark case Qualitex Company vs. Jacobson Products Co., Inc. which unanimously accepted my argument that a product's color alone can be registered as a trademark. I serve as lead counsel in infringement and anti-counterfeiting actions, intellectual property related insurance coverage disputes, and opposition and cancellation proceedings in the US Patent and Trademark Office. I have particular expertise in the international protection and enforcement of intellectual property.
