Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

Partner at McCarter & English LLP, in the Intellectual Property and Technology Law Group. I have a wealth of industry experience in the computer software and hardware fields to bolster the legal experience I have developed over the years.

My primary focus is on intellectual property matters in the technology sector, mainly involving patent prosecution and litigation. However, we also handle a whole host of other matters, including corporate transactions and finance, M&A, litigation, real estate, employment, immigration, privacy, data security, licensing and more.

On a personal level, I am an avid video gamer, wine lover and fitness fanatic. Admittedly, all these things take a back seat to my children, who are central to my life and are at the core of my philosophy as an attorney. Treat all with the respect you desire to be treated with.
