“Rick worked with me for over a year to defend a case filed by a multi-billion dollar company. Financial drain from drawn-out litigation was a primary concern. Rick was always open to discussing alternative approaches along with educated estimates of the risks, benefits, timing, and costs. We had a very respectful relationship including few times when I was outraged by the process. As we went through discovery, Rick worked with me to come up with strategies to keeps costs manageable. Rick was consistently able to explain the applicable legal principles at the desired level comprehension with reasonable efficiency/cost. He also worked with me to develop strategies and contingencies based on different possible scenarios, with the goal of achieving core goals as cost-efficiently as possible. I would hire him again for IP matters on either side of a case.”
