We are a group of seasoned litigators who have successfully handled thousands of intellectual property disputes for a variety of clients from multinational corporations (who want the best advice money can buy) to small, local startups and individuals (who quickly learn that good legal advice is often priceless). 

We are proud to be a diverse group of men and women with academic degrees from some of the most prestigious schools in the country, including Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Dartmouth, Duke and Williams, among others.  Our technical backgrounds range from biochemistry to computer science, engineering to medicine, business to finance.  Our team thrives on the unique challenges conflict can provide and capitalizes on the different perspectives that our diversity supplies.
