Parrish is an experienced litigator whose practice is focused primarily on patent, trademark, and other intellectual property and complex commercial matters.  Whether it’s dealing with allegations of infringement, coordinating a large-scale enforcement effort, or negotiating a license, Parrish is adept at helping his clients navigate the complex intellectual property issues they encounter daily. Parrish has litigated patent cases across a wide spectrum of technologies, from very complicated chemical, electrical, and software matters to relatively simple mechanical cases. 

Parrish grew up in Tennessee, attended college and law school in North Carolina, and then moved to the mountains of Utah, where he has been handling patent and other intellectual property disputes since 1998. While his undergraduate degree is in chemistry, his proven ability to assimilate any technology and a nuanced understanding of patent law that only years of experience can bring make him a valued senior member of the Maschoff Brennan litigation practice group.

Parrish represents clients in Section 337 and International Trade Commission (ITC) investigations, guiding them throughout the entire process including filing the complaint through the investigation conclusion; representation in parallel proceedings before district courts and the Patent Trial and Appeal Board; and, if necessary, appeals to the Federal Circuit.

In addition, Parrish’s practice includes inter-partes review (IPR) and post-grant review (PGR) proceedings. His understanding of the interplay between these administrative proceedings and traditional infringement litigation gives his clients a real advantage over their adversaries.

Parrish has handled a number of trademark and trade dress enforcement matters over the years. In many cases, Parrish has helped his clients save considerable time and money by reaching their enforcement goals through UDRP proceedings rather than through conventional litigation.

As a registered patent attorney, Parrish is also equipped to prosecute matters before the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), although he has focused his practice over the years on enforcing and defending intellectual property rights rather than procuring them.

Parrish often writes and lectures on a wide variety of Intellectual property-related topics. He currently volunteers his time as a member of the Patent Litigation Committee of the American Bar Association, IP Section, and is continually listed in Best Lawyers in America rankings for Litigation—Patent, Litigation—Intellectual Property, Patent Law, and Trademark Law.
