Seattle Patent, Trademark, and IP Lawyer
Intellectual Property and Commercial Litigation
Many litigators will bill you for the sake of billing, without actually solving your problem. My approach is different. Without huge overhead to support, I can customize a dispute resolution strategy that drives your business forward and protects your rights.
I have helped resolve IP disputes and commercial matters in both state and federal courts across the U.S. Because I have been to trial at least six times to resolve such issues, I understand the risks of this path and I can guide you through it.
Utility and Design Patent Protection
Your ideas are the backbone of your business. I’ve prosecuted patents covering consumer products, outdoor recreation equipment, construction tools, and medical devices. I love learning about new technologies, and I’m looking forward to hearing about yours.
Your brand includes your name, logo, slogans, and “look and feel” of whatever customers see. If you don’t protect your brand through careful preparation and enforcement, you could lose valuable rights. Let’s make sure that doesn’t happen. I’ve prosecuted trademarks in the consumer products, medical technology, manufacturing, and fitness industries; and I’m happy to help in yours too.
As a former venue owner and gigging musician, I am familiar with various sides of the music industry. I have negotiated and drafted employment contracts, settlements, non-disclosure agreements, and other commercial contracts for artists, game developers, and inventors. Enjoy peace of mind knowing that I will help you avoid any pitfalls that may surface along the way.
You have a great idea, and you figured out how to secure your intellectual property rights. Now you may want to license it to others and enjoy the fruits of your labor. If you need help in developing, licensing, selling, and maintaining ownership over your creations throughout our career, I can help. I have years of experience working with entrepreneurs, game developers, inventors, engineers, and other professions.
