Formerly a corporate and intellectual property lawyer, I’ve spent the past 24 years guiding innovation through strategic product design. My experience offers a unique understanding of the business side of creativity... From toys to complex medical devices, I've helped hundreds of clients bridge the elusive gap between creative insight and commercial success.
I also keep one foot firmly in the legal side of design, advising on all aspects of IP strategy - protection to monetization. And if things don’t go as planned, I provide litigation support and serve as expert witness in disputes involving patent infringement, validity, trade dress and associated intellectual property matters.
