     Intellectual property law is fascinating as a practice specialty. I'm called to function as an artist, a scientist, an architect, a writer and a legal & business strategist. It's a recipe for a challenging but rewarding career.   

     Establishing my own private practice in Seattle (2012) provides the professional freedom to represent selective clients whose values align authentically with my own. I deeply need to have an authentic purpose in life. Knowing that I'm making a substantial difference is critical for my well-being as a person and a professional (18 years of experience).

     As a patent attorney, I see my role as "an architect of ideas."

     As a trademark attorney, I see my role as "a branding strategist." 

      I enjoy providing HIGH IMPACT SERVICE without professional constraints.  I seriously enjoy intellectual challenges.  

     The most enjoyable aspect of my consultancy practice is the high degree of FLEXIBILITY to support clients located anywhere, under FLEXIBLE terms that benefit both of us. I find that entrepreneurial business owners appreciate the ability to conduct business under FLEXIBLE terms, providing highest degree of freedom without compromising QUALITY representation. 

     I can represent clients located anywhere. Most of my clients are receiving legal support delivered remotely using emails, Skype, Zoom, and secured file-exchange platforms.

     You may wish to connect with me on LinkedIn to review my professional experience and client testimonials. The LI button is located at the bottom header of this page.

     I look forward to hearing from you!

     Leave no stone unturned in your ventures!
