Tim focuses his practice on intellectual property and complex litigation, including matters involving contract enforcement, business governance, patent and trademark disputes, and fraud. His expertise and approach as a litigator are informed by his previous experience working as a corporate attorney for emerging technology companies and his time spent working directly on three startup teams as a co-founder.

 He advises clients in a wide range of industries and has a particular interest in cutting-edge technologies and biosciences.  This insight allows Tim to understand the technology, innovations, underlying sciences, and facts at stake in every case.  In addition, his clients benefit from his ability to explain complex systems in a concise and understandable manner.

During law school, Tim served as Executive Articles Editor of the University of Utah Law Review while authoring and publishing two legal articles. As a student, he was awarded a fellowship from the Center for Law and Biosciences, he received a scholarship for his work assisting in the commercialization of new technologies, and he completed judicial externships for Judge Dustin B. Pead on the United States District Court for the District of Utah and Chief Judge R. Kimball Mosier on the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Utah.  

Tim enjoys speaking and writing about trends in emerging technology and the legal issues they present. He has spoken and moderated panels at events focused on blockchain technology, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, including events hosted by Silicon Slopes and the University of Utah.

When not at work, Tim loves to travel and enjoys playing tennis, hiking, and skiing in the beautiful Utah mountains.
