He is a one-stop shop for all his clients’ intellectual property needs.
Warner’s clients cover a broad range of industries, including:
He counsels clients on U.S. intellectual property laws and protection, and he manages a number of international patent and trademark portfolios. He coordinates with counsel in foreign countries on an almost daily basis to ensure that his clients’ overseas IP assets are strong and consistent with their business objectives.
