STRATEGIC ENGAGEMENTS: HELPING CO-COUNSEL MAKE YOUR BEST CASE
We work with your existing litigation team to improve important briefs and motions. Many companies hire IP counsel based on excellent technical comprehension—but this does not always translate to excellent legal writing. That's where we come in.
Gunnar worked for a year as an appellate clerk and received a Master's Certificate in Legal Writing from the Academy of American Legal Writers, where he was awarded the Jackson Achievement Award. Wendi was a Pepperdine Law Review Editor, judicial extern for Judge Mosman of the District of Oregon, and commercial litigator at Kirkland & Ellis LLP. We know how to communicate with judges, especially ones without technical training.
