Claimed Lawyer ProfileBlawg SearchSocial Media

I am a business attorney with substantial in-house legal experience at companies involved in entertainment and communications technologies. I focus on technology transactions, contracts, trademark and copyright law, and publishing law. I have negotiated and drafted complex, sophisticated contracts involving technology, licensing, joint ventures, and asset purchases. I've also managed an extensive intellectual property portfolio (trademarks and copyrights), and have handled the prosecution of domestic and international trademarks, software licensing, domain name enforcement, and copyright registrations.
