Bill is a member of the firm's Litigation Practice Group, where he concentrates his practice on commercial litigation in both federal and state courts. He represents business organizations and individuals in a variety of disputes ranging from contracts and torts to insurance coverage and the Uniform Commercial Code. Bill has also litigated intellectual property matters, including trademark infringement cases. He has sat on both sides of those IP cases, securing trademark rights for clients as well as defending them against infringement claims.
Prior to entering private practice, and after graduating in the top of his law school class, Bill was a law clerk to a federal judge of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania. Through his clerkship, he gained valuable insight into the procedure and practice of federal courts both in general and in the Middle District of Pennsylvania in particular. Leveraging his experience as a law clerk and federal and state court litigator, Bill has served as local counsel for out-of-state parties in lawsuits brought in Pennsylvania.
Bill’s litigation practice is complemented by the Master of Business Administration he earned from the Rutgers Business School at Rutgers University in New Jersey. That gives him the unique position to understand a client’s business and industry and the context in which commercial transactions and disputes arise.
