ick Garver’s passion for the courtroom is evident in all that he does. Today, he focuses that passion on achieving victories for the firm’s world-class clients. Nick comes to the team after serving as a judicial law clerk in the chambers of The Honorable James G. Reinhart of the Board of Veterans’ Appeals.
Nick gained early exposure to the courtroom and trial practice as an intern in the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, the largest local prosecutorial office in the United States. There he assisted in the Major Crimes section and worked on high profile cases, including The People v. Robert Durst. He takes the lessons learned from that office about how to story tell into his intellectual property cases.
In law school, Nick was the Managing Editor of UCLA’s famed Entertainment Law Review. In that position, Nick steered the publication’s editorial focus toward the weighty patent, copyright, and trademark issues in show business. Nick earned two scholarships at UCLA: the Dean’s Merit Scholarship and the Henry and Emma DeGarmo Memorial Scholarship.
Before law school, Nick obtained a masters degree from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service. He received a full tuition scholarship to attend. In college at Yale, Nick was an avid writer. His private works, extensive and wide ranging, have been a source of personal pride and inspiration.
Nick is also a pianist and ethnomusicologist. He most enjoys the works of Hungarian greats Béla Bartók and Franz Liszt.
