“I am passionate about helping my clients protect their IP rights, including securing patents for high technology inventions and protecting the core brands at the heart of their businesses and securing utility and design patents for their inventions. I enjoy working with clients to come up with creative solutions to complex IP challenges.

In the realm of trademarks, I handle the global trademark portfolios for multiple companies in a variety of industries, and I am skilled at helping clients resolve trademark disputes in a cost-effective manner.”
