Tim has been running his own law firm since 2010, but practiced earlier in a mid-sized intellectual property boutique as well as large national and international firms. He has always focused on patent- and trademark-related work.

Need help with an office action?

Tim has helped guide many trademark applications through getting a trademark registered, including when the USPTO has issued “office actions” that refuse registration. Tim’s background is in Federal court lawsuits (where patent and trademark cases are typically filed). Writing convincing arguments for judges there helps him be a persuasive lawyer now when his clients need help with trademark applications.

Looking for practical experience?

The other side of getting a patent or trademark registration is enforcing them – going after the other company, or defending those accused of violating those rights. Knowing where your rights might need to be enforced helps Tim better advise you on protecting your rights.

Tim has practical experience with the day-to-day case management of patent and trademark cases, including working with clients and opposing counsel. He has led and assisted clients through patent opinions of counsel, has led successful mediations and participated in arbitrations and prepared and negotiated settlement agreements.

Need help with a trademark opposition or cancellation?

These are essentially smaller lawsuits along the line of a trademark case filed in Federal court. Tim has practical experience in both those kinds of lawsuits and in the specialized ‘court’ that decides oppositions.
