Meet Peter Snell
A breakthrough technology can rewrite the rules of an industry. I love learning and thinking about new technologies — what they do, how they do it, and their power to drive disruptive, innovative solutions. In my practice, I leverage my curiosity, technology background, and understanding of the law to help clients protect their mission-critical intellectual property through patents, trademarks, and copyrights. In courts across the country, including US district courts and the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, I also litigate patent infringement, patent invalidity, and other IP disputes for clients with technology-based assets: communications systems and networks, electronics, software, Internet and mobile applications, machine learning, and medical devices. Our team is here to help you implement cost-effective strategies and achieve the best possible outcomes, whether we are helping you to capture and protect your IP, enforcing your IP rights, or defending against patent claims.

The most valuable lesson I’ve learned in business is …
that any good business relationship is built on trust and frequent, open communication.
