Dave has had a diverse intellectual property practice for over 40 years. His work has included patent and trademark litigation, prosecution, licensing negotiations, dispute resolution, and portfolio management.
Dave has particular experience in the mechanical and electrical arts and has also been extensively involved with a wide range of trademark matters. He has prepared many opinions on complex legal and technical issues. His litigation experience includes numerous patent infringement trials and appeals, Section 337 unfair import investigations before the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC), and trademark and unfair competition matters in state and federal courts. He has also served as an expert witness. Since 1997, he has been an arbitrator for the American Arbitration Association, and has acted as a mediator.

In 1986, Dave opened an office for his prior firm in Tokyo, Japan. He spent three years in Japan as the resident partner of the office, and was licensed in Japan as a Gaikoku-ho Jimu Bengoshi (foreign lawyer). As a result of his experiences in Japan, Dave has developed an extensive knowledge of Japanese intellectual property law and Japanese culture. He has frequently written and spoken on topics related to Japanese intellectual property protection. He has attended annual Council Meetings of the Asian Patent Attorneys Association for over 30 years as an invited guest, speaker, or observer.
