I manage a wide variety of legal issues relating to WARF and its affiliates, including supporting efforts to move technology from the lab to the marketplace. As in-house counsel, I have worked on a variety of legal matters including drafting hundreds of license agreements and other contracts, managing several multi-million dollar patent and contract litigation matters, and helping to launch a new venture fund, among other things. While in private practice, I worked primarily in patent prosecution and IP litigation. I bring a practical and collaborative approach to problem solving and enjoy taking on new challenges and opportunities to learn. Goal-wise, I am interested in expanding my expertise and scope of practice, and continuing to contribute to WARF - an organization with a great history, mission and vision.
