Practice Areas:

I combine trial and appellate experience gained as a federal prosecutor in the Southern District of New York with nineteen years of experience, including several jury trials, handling patent, copyright, trademark, and trade secret litigation.

Recently, I obtained summary judgment for a bank against a patentee claiming that its patent covered on-line financial account approval systems. I also defended a light fixture manufacturer against claims that its architectural light fixtures infringed a competitor's design patent. Finally, I defended a retailer against charges that its children's shoes infringed a LED patent.

I also continue to handle federal criminal matters, including a recent internal investigation relating to the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. I have made numerous oral arguments before the 2nd and 7th Circuits, and received a written commendation of my advocacy from Judge Posner. United States v. Lawton, 366 F.3d 550 (7th Cir. 2004).
