Clients throughout the country, both big and small, trust Justin to protect their business interests and intellectual property rights at all stages—from the initial phases of prosecution to defending those rights in litigation.
Justin focuses on protecting all forms of his clients' intellectual property through litigation in federal and state courts across the country. These matters include patent, copyright, trademark, counterfeit, trade secret, and breach of contract cases. His detail-oriented and aggressive approach to litigation, while at the same time never losing sight of his clients' best interests, positions each case for the best possible result.
Justin also provides strategic counseling to companies of all sizes to help proactively protect some of their most valuable, but often overlooked, assets—their intellectual property rights. In doing so, Justin has experience in the preparation and prosecution of trademark and copyright registrations, as well as intellectual property licensing agreements.
Through his full-service approach, Justin helps his clients focus on developing their business, while trusting that their legal needs are in good hands. And as an active member of the Patent, Trademark and Copyright Section of The Bar Association of Metropolitan Saint Louis (BAMSL), he shares his expertise throughout the community.
