I received a BA in Biology and Chemistry from New College of Florida, a MS degree in Biochemistry from the University of Hawai`i, a JD degree from the University of Hawai`i School of Law where I served on the law review, and a LLM degree in international and comparative law from the University of Cambridge in England.
Following law school I clerked for the Hawai`i Supreme Court and served as its staff attorney, taught law at the universities of Malaya and Hawai`i, and practiced law in the public and private sectors. My practice emphasizes patent, trademark, copyright, technology and Internet law while also providing services in business law, commercial litigation and dispute resolution.
I am a member of the bars of the states of Hawai`i and California, admitted before the U.S. Supreme Court, and the Federal and Ninth Circuit Courts of Appeal, and am a registered patent attorney with the USPTO. I serve as an arbitration panelist for WIPO; a delegate to ICANN; and a fellow to the American Bar Foundation.
