At the age of 8, Ken began spending weekends in his family’s neon sign factory watching the fusion of art and science. This was the genesis of Ken’s pursuit of a life melding left-brained and right-brained thinking. Ken’s quest led him to his passion for intellectual property litigation.
Ken’s history in IP litigation began even before he attended law school. After graduating from the University of California, Berkeley with a degree in applied mathematics, Ken jumped into the IP world with both feet, serving two years as a paralegal at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliff in Palo Alto. His introduction to the field motivated Ken to become an attorney himself, earning a scholarship to attend the University of San Francisco School of Law.
Since then, Ken has litigated all aspects of patent and other IP litigation. His experience includes arguing winning dispositive motions, arguing claim construction, taking and defending dozens of depositions, and authoring winning briefs.
Ken’s favorite equation is Euler’s identity: eiπ + 1 = 0. Ken, and many other mathematicians, consider this to be the most artistically beautiful formula ever crafted.
