I am very pleased to have Doug join us here at HCPC. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience, and trial chops, to our expanding group of trust/estate and business litigators here at the firm. Doug’s particular experience in intellectual property disputes and “Soft IP” battles, and his trial readiness, will further enhance our business and IP litigation expertise and expand our trial capacity. I hope to work closely with Doug on a variety of matters and on further expanding our litigation practice group.
Doug is the real deal! He has held an AV Preeminent Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Rating for ten years, and has been recognized as a Top Lawyer in Business & Intellectual Property Litigation in San Diego Magazine. For over 20 years, Doug has enforced and defended the rights of businesses and individuals in state and federal courts, including disputes concerning trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, domain names, and other types of intellectual property; disputes involving media and advertising, internet marketing and commerce, privacy rights, defamation, and unfair competition; disputes arising from contracts, fiduciary duties, business relationships and separations, and fraud; and matters concerning real property rights. Doug has authored numerous articles appearing in national and local publications, including ALM’s Law Journal Newsletters – The Intellectual Property Strategist and Product Liability Law & Strategy, the Los Angeles Daily Journal, the San Diego Business Journal, and the Association of Business Trial Lawyers Report. He is an active member of the San Diego County Bar Association, the International Trademark Association, the Federal Bar Association and the California State Bar Intellectual Property Section.
On top of all this, Doug is just a great guy. And his wife, Maureen, is wonderful. We welcome them and their beautiful daughters, Grace and Katie, to our HCPC family!
