Adam’s practice focuses on litigating patents, trade secrets, and litigation-driven IP portfolio management. Already running multi-patent, multi-jurisdiction litigation in his second year, Adam has more experience briefing and arguing high-end cases at the district court, Federal Circuit, and PTAB level than many practitioners ten years his senior. His aptitude for creative solutions to complex problems made him a go-to troubleshooter for colleagues across multiple disciplines.

With an educational background spanning economics, statistics, computer science, and physics, Adam has a unique multidisciplinary perspective to solving client problems. He has proven success litigating across a wide range of technologies including casino gaming devices and systems, semiconductor design and fabrication, databases, enterprise/backbone level networking, smartphones, consumer electronics, mobile commerce, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, heavy equipment, Wi-Fi and location services. He believes that IP should be value-generating assets and not wall art, and brings a value-oriented approach to litigation and strategic IP counseling.
