Tim has litigated cases in a wide range of areas and technologies – from trademarks to time interval analyzers.

Tim also counsels clients in brand development, trademark prosecution, domain name dispute resolution, and contract negotiation.

He also served as the Intellectual Property Section Chair of the King County Bar Association for several years, and is a member of the Copyright Society of the USA and the International Trademark Association.
Before becoming a lawyer, Tim built and renovated dozens of residential homes, and ran a live music venue. Tim interned for the Federal Trade Commission and the Honorable Richard L. Young in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana. Shortly after graduating from the University of Washington School of Law, he concluded his work assisting in the revision of licensing policies at the UW’s technology transfer office (formerly the “C4C”). After the C4C, Tim worked for a notable Seattle IP boutique until he joined Lowe Graham Jones.
