His expertise has led him to work in many Anton Piller cases involving the misappropriation of confidential information. He has also worked in cases before the Superior Court in intellectual property matters which allowed him to obtain, in one of the rare precedents of the last decade, the issuance of an interlocutory injunction in a patent infringement dispute.
