Bryan helps clients leverage intellectual property strategies and assets to meet business goals.

Bryan’s practice chiefly involves advising clients on intellectual property (IP) strategy, including how to use intellectual property to grow company value. His counsel touches upon all aspects of IP, including patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets, and his client roster spans companies at all stages of growth, from start-ups to large multinational corporations.

Bryan understands that successful IP strategies may take years to execute and applying long-term strategic thinking to each portfolio, while building in flexibility for the future, can maximize the chances for success. He is a registered patent attorney and has extensive experience preparing and prosecuting patent, trademark, and copyright applications and managing intellectual property portfolios both domestically and internationally. Bryan regularly counsels clients on strategic intellectual property litigation matters, both offensively and defensively.
