He is so adept at anticipating display needs, some of his clients have commented that it’s as if he can read their minds.

On videoconferencing platforms, he and his world-class team display the same level of proficiency that has earned them praise in the courtroom.

His trial work focuses on complex high-stakes litigation. Some of his cases include a copyright infringement trial on behalf of Google in San Francisco, an eminent domain case for the East Bay Regional Parks District in Oakland, and a patent infringement trial for Samsung in Marshall, Texas.
