I have a well-rounded practice that includes both technology and intellectual property transactions, and complex patent litigation.

In my transactional practice, I counsel clients on a variety of commercial agreements, including identifying issues, drafting, reviewing, and negotiating agreements. Typical agreements include software license agreements, software-as-a-service agreements, cloud computing, vendor/procurement agreements, non-disclosure agreements, consulting agreements, online terms of use and privacy policies, statements of work, or other complex services engagements and license agreements, especially those involving software and other intellectual property. I have represented transactional clients in a variety of industries including:

  • Financial services, including securities trading and investing
  • Medical and dental claims processing
  • Hospitality industry
  • Healthcare revenue management
  • Industrial packaging
  • Utility management services
  • Food service equipment manufacturing
  • Safety consulting and certification

My litigation experience comprises a full scope of services including, pre-filing investigations, discovery, depositions, motion practice, technical expert work, economic expert work, claim construction briefings and hearings, jury trial, Federal Circuit appeal, and Supreme Court writ of certiorari. In addition to litigations related to patent infringement, I also have experience in disputes related to licenses, audits, inventorship, trade secrets and antitrust. I have extensive experience representing clients in U.S. District Courts throughout the country, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and the U.S. International Trade Commission, as well as in Arbitration proceedings. My extensive patent litigation experience includes representing some of the nation’s largest companies in complex, multi-patent, cases.

I earned my Juris Doctor at the University of Illinois, where I was an editor on the Illinois Law Review, and my Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan.
