Tim’s passion for technology has driven his interest in intellectual property litigation and policy. Tim has worked on trial court and appellate matters involving a wide range of technologies, including DNA profiling, fetal diagnostics, mass storage controllers, multicast routing, semiconductor memory, video games, and wireless device management.
Tim has also helped revise local patent rules and served as a teaching assistant for a patent litigation class at Stanford Law School. He is involved in a number of professional organizations, and his service includes drafting an amicus curiae brief on behalf of the AIPLA in Supap Kirtsaeng v. John Wiley & Sons (concerning the legality of reselling copyrighted goods made abroad).
Before joining Durie Tangri, Tim was an associate at Weil, Gotshal & Manges and served as a law clerk to the Honorable Kathleen M. O’Malley, both at the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and previously at the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio. He graduated from Stanford Law School, where he served as Co-Editor in Chief for the Stanford Technology Law Review, and the University of Virginia, where he majored in Economics with distinction.
In his spare time, Tim tackles recipes from the Modernist Cuisine, Alinea and French Laundry cookbooks. Tim also enjoys playing all sports, but his best is lawyers’ league basketball.
