Litigator of ip and contract disputes for technology companies.
- I negotiate and litigate disputes and opportunities for business owners
- My clients have spent years building relationships, distribution channels, technical product lines and technical service offerings. When promises are not kept by partners, employees, vendors, service providers disputes threaten the whole business. When employees steal source code, competitors infringe trademarks or for content companies copyrights, litigation may be the only option.
- I do not take litigation lightly but I take it seriously and have been thru ugly fights against large opponents. Past success is never an indication of any future performance but client’s come to me because they want a fighter and an advocate not afraid to fight. Client’s also come to me because while I like to win, I am able to translate what winning means to a client that is affordable and reasonable. I am often wary of those that say “win at all costs” because that is not winning at all.
- Having practiced law for 12+ years my goal is to be known as one of the best infringement litigation lawyers in the West and maybe East too (Fluent Japanese!)
Litigating for private companies that sell branded products, software or technical services who are frustrated about being ripped off as investor, copyright owner, publisher, software developer. I litigate primarily in federal court and mediation venues for trademark owners, copyright owners and other proprietary right holders.
