From the food and beverage industry to the software and technology sector, Trevor acts as an advocate for clients operating in a variety of disciplines with respect to their intellectual property transactional, prosecution, enforcement, and litigation needs. Whether he is defending a food and beverage client from a threatened temporary restraining order concerning the use of a trademark or negotiating a complex master software subscription services agreement on behalf of a multibillion-dollar software client, Trevor fluidly ties together his transactional and litigation knowledge and experience to zealously advocate for his clients. Accordingly, he is able to find unique and possibly overlooked transactional-based arguments to raise in connection with litigations and to analyze intellectual property-related agreements with a litigant’s eye, both to help clients better negotiate their positions and to avoid potential pitfalls in the future.
