"I recently worked with Will to prepare several expert declarations for submission to the USPTO. I found Will to be smart, personable, and very easy to work with. He had a no-nonsense approach that helped us identify and attack the critical weaknesses in the opposition's arguments. Will was efficient and thorough, and I'd gladly retain him again in future matters."
