Our collective experiences include being outside counsel at major law firms, and in-house counsel at large corporations. This background serves as a great foundation to enable us to see the forest for the trees, hone in on the issues at hand, and offer sound, practical guidance to address those issues in light of the forest.

Our firm's attorneys have experience in roles including general counsel, and chief intellectual property counsel, and have dealt with many different commercial legal topics. With that backdrop, our experience allows us to handle a wide variety of cases, and our expertise enables us to focus on generating, managing and enforcing intellectual property rights, and contract rights.
