This year, clients identified 475 individual attorneys from 181 law firms nationwide as “standing above all the others in delivering the absolute best in client service.” Attorneys are evaluated for exceptional performance in client engagement and investment and for qualities including keen strategic insight and industry savvy, unequivocal clarity, and a forward-thinking mindset.

He is an established first-chair trial lawyer with a strong track record in numerous jury and bench trials, including cases involving patent, trade secret, antitrust, trademark, unfair competition, and professional malpractice matters.
