Jason has practiced exclusively in the IP space for over 30 years, providing strategic, business-focused counseling to clients ranging from start-ups to industry leading companies and top tier academic institutions. Jason develops strong and lasting client relationships, with several mainstay clients now in their second and even third decade with the firm.

Jason has a broad intellectual property practice, with a particular emphasis on representing clients in patent and trademark litigation, post grant challenges to patent validity, technology licensing, IP due diligence in technology based M&A, financing and other significant transactions, building and maintaining patent and trademark portfolios, validity and non-infringement opinions, and navigating among competitors’ IP rights.

Jason represents clients in a wide range of diverse industries within the mechanical/electro-mechanical field, including medical devices, consumer products, sports equipment, apparel and footwear, textiles, HVAC, labware, food and beverage, injection molding machinery, optical fibers, water treatment, industrial equipment and systems, clean technology, soldier systems, and laboratory and diagnostic equipment. He represents industry leaders such as Burton Snowboards (sports equipment), C.R. Bard (medical devices), Husky Injection Molding (equipment manufacturer) and SharkNinja (Shark® and Ninja® appliances, formerly Euro-Pro). 

Jason regularly speaks to industry and client groups on a variety of intellectual property issues. His recent invited speaking engagements include a series of webinars for MassMedic, and a symposium (which he co-chaired) on the America Invents Act at Suffolk University Law School. Jason was an invited participant to the inaugural meeting of the Medical Device Technology Partnership at the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

Client testimonial:
"A lot of what Jason does can’t be emulated. He’s extremely responsive, but it’s not just the responsiveness. He has the answer to the questions, or if he doesn’t he lets me know when he will. Responsiveness is key; I hear back in two hours and that makes me look good to the client."
Client testimonial:
"Jason has an exceptional ability to digest large amounts of information, assimilate it and explain it in a clear and concise manner. He is very organized and clear off the cuff. He’s very valuable. You can’t really touch what he has."
Client testimonial:
"Jason is the only patent attorney that can handle our management."
Client testimonial:
"Jason is extremely responsive and knows what I need and doesn’t overshoot or undershoot and isn’t afraid to give an answer on the spot. He will give me the caveats, and that’s extremely important, but he will give me what I need in one paragraph and that’s very, very helpful."
