Overview

Biography

As an attorney with almost two decades of experience, Brian’s deep and wide-ranging legal practice experience makes him a trusted advisor to his clients. He primarily handles matters involving intellectual property commercialization, protection, preservation, and, if needed, litigation. He routinely counsels technology start-ups and mature companies alike to identify and secure competitive advantages in the marketplace through intellectual property and “de-risking” strategies. He also regularly assists companies in an outside general counsel role with corporate transactions, data privacy and cybersecurity compliance, and economic development projects. 

In addition to his legal practice, Brian is the executive director of the Innovation Law Center and a member of the faculty at the Syracuse University College of Law. In this role, Brian teaches intellectual property and technology law courses and works with students to enhance the experiential learning environment by advising actual companies with real technologies on the technical, legal, and business aspects involved in bringing new technologies to market.
