David is a member of the firm’s litigation department, where he concentrates on intellectual property, international arbitration, and restructuring matters. David’s understanding of complex products, varied industries, and technical and financial analysis lends itself to his varied practice.

David’s intellectual property litigation practice (patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright and IP theft), involves trials and appeals, as well as license drafting, IP royalty audits and related disputes.  He has experience litigating offensive and defensive patent infringement matters across a wide range of technologies in federal district courts and before the International Trade Commission, in addition to assisting clients with contentious, in- and out-of-court licensing disputes. David utilizes his litigation background to draft IP agreements, patent licenses and joint collaboration arrangements involving the transfer and development of intellectual property rights.

David’s international arbitration practice frequently intersects with his intellectual property experience in representing companies as claimant and respondent under all manner of arbitration rules, including AAA, CPR, ICC, and ICSID, in licensing, development, and commercialization disputes.

David’s restructuring practice involves representing debtors and creditors in bankruptcy litigation, both as it relates to intellectual property assets and beyond. He is routinely called upon to quickly understand different industries and the economics of client’s businesses to work with financial advisors and expert witnesses. David has experience in Chapter 11, Chapter 15 and Chapter 9 bankruptcy matters, and has litigated numerous Chapter 11 matters – most recently in MTE Holdings and Alta Mesa – before the bankruptcy courts and federal appeals courts. In addition, David’s work extends to representing board members in connection with their fiduciary duties during restructurings.

Prior to joining Bracewell, David served as a clerk in the Southern District of New York for the Honorable William C. Conner and on the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals for the Honorable Monroe G. McKay.
