Nick has litigated patents in a wide variety of technical areas.

He was named a "national litigation star" for intellectual property by Benchmark Litigation 2014, one of the Lawdragon "500 leading lawyers in America" and an expert in patent law in the Guide to the World's Leading Patent Practitioners.
