Mr. Tousi is a distinguished IP licensing and litigation attorney with an active intellectual practice for leading corporations. Mr. Tousi previously served as Director of Intellectual Property for the Telecommunications Business of Samsung Electronics, and has had a distinguished career with such firms as Booz Allen Hamilton and IBM. Mr. Tousi, along with Mr. Albrecht, had joined Venable in May of 2000 through merger with Lane, Aitken & McCann.
Mr. Farnum has built a national reputation as an intellectual property litigator and licensing attorney through his years with Venable and Latham & Watkins. His practice focuses on patent trial, appellate and other intellectual property work in a variety of technologies ranging from electronics, telecommunications products and services, software, computer hardware and financial services.
“As a past president of the Bar Association of DC, the nation’s third oldest bar association, I am proud we are founding our firm in the Nation’s capital city,” said Albrecht. As former co-chair of Venable’s patent prosecution group, focusing on its domestic patent practice, Albrecht oversaw a period of unprecedented growth in that firm’s patent practice, while building a world class patent foreign filing department in its Washington Office, before moving his practice more recently to its Northern Virginia office.
“This boutique law firm platform will enable us to meet a growing need in the IP services marketplace at a time when businesses around the country and across the globe are seeking creative, cost effective solutions to increasingly difficult legal and financial challenges,"
