Question 1

How long have you been involved with this area of practice and what made you initially interested in this area?

I have been practicing intellectual property law for over 10 years, first in private practice and more recently as an academic. Before attending law school, I was a musician, and it was my connection to music that first attracted me to intellectual property classes in law school. Almost immediately, however, I discovered that intellectual property law offered much more: an opportunity to continue learning throughout my career. As an attorney, my practice ranged among patent, trademark, copyright, and entertainment litigation, and for each case I worked on, I found myself having to learn something new — a new technology, a new industry and a new set of developing laws. That continual development has kept me inspired to stay in the field.
