J.D., M.A., University of Virginia School of Law, Legal History, 2009
Brian's interest in computers and technology began when a fourth-grade science project led him to write his first program. This same desire to understand technology has helped Brian become an effective patent litigator.
Prior to joining Durie Tangri, Brian was an associate at Quinn Emanuel Urquart & Sullivan, where he represented Google and HTC in Android litigation before the ITC, and worked on cases involving technology from machine learning to 3G wireless and Internet advertising. Brian graduated from the University of Virginia School of Law in 2009. While in law school Brian spent a semester abroad learning German and studying at the Bucerius Hochschule fűr Reschtswissenschaft in Hamburg, Germany. Before going to law school, Brian spent two years on the faculty at the Thomas Jefferson School in St. Louis, Missouri, teaching Ancient and European History and Precalculus, and serving as Director of Technology.
Outside of the office, Brian enjoys reading in San Francisco's beautiful parks, camping and hiking, and the occasional programming project.
