I've specialized in all areas of intellectual property law for over 20 years, as in-house legal counsel at Becton Dickinson and Company, and in private practice at law firms in New York and New Jersey. In addition, I spent 10 years as an engineer and product manager at AT&T – Bell Laboratories, designing and managing data communication devices and systems. This combination of legal, engineering and business experience enables me to provide real-world, practical, strategic and tactical guidance and advice for my clients.
