Representative Work;

  • Worked as part of a team advising a private European transportation company about all legal aspects of its participation in a pilot project to operate an autonomous shuttle—the largest self-driving pilot project in the U.S. to operate in live traffic—in the city of Las Vegas. The matter required deep experience and judgement, since much of the law is undeveloped. The project was a complete success and garnered good media coverage for the client.
  • Served as trial counsel to a global pharmaceuticals company in back-to-back trials on patent infringement matters. Successful trials resulted in a highly favorable settlement for a client.
  • Hired as trial counsel by one of the world’s largest automotive parts suppliers in trade secret litigation. At stake was the very survival of the company. Prior to trial, wrote and argued a summary judgment that resulted in a complete victory, safeguarding the client company’s viability.
  • In a complete trial victory, obtained early dismissal and disqualification of experts for a major telecommunications company in a patent infringement lawsuit.
