Prior to joining Wolf Greenfield, Greg was a senior associate in the patent litigation group at Covington & Burling LLP, where his practice focused on a wide-range of IP matters involving complex electrical and computer technologies, including consumer electronics, semiconductor fabrication and device physics, and software and hardware related to various wireless standards and protocols, including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and 2G/3G/4G/5G cellular phone-standards.
