He has represented clients in patent, trademark, false advertising, trade secret, and copyright cases across a broad spectrum of industries in district courts throughout the country and before the ITC. Ron currently represents patent-owners in litigations covering a variety of technology areas, and is widely respected as a pharmaceutical Hatch-Waxman litigator for generic drug companies.

Ron believes in efficient case management to achieve the favorable outcome that best aligns with his client’s long-term strategies.
In addition to his intellectual property litigation practice, Ron counsels startups and companies of all sizes regarding patent procurement and clearance, and domestic and international trademark prosecution and licensing.
