(480) 830-2700


If you asked Rod about his biggest career successes, he probably wouldn’t mention the multi-million dollar companies he represents or the international alliances he’s established. Instead, he’d probably talk excitedly about the brilliant person he spoke with yesterday whose idea is going to change the world. If you were to remind him that you were hoping to hear about his biggest success, not his client’s, he’d respond by expressing that is his greatest success: improving the world by giving the brilliant minds around him access to progress through his carefully designed strategies of intellectual property protection and growth. Perhaps the epitome of his inclination to beautify the world through proactive innovation is the new iris that he hybridized in his own backyard that was accepted by the American Iris Society. As a great communicator, Rod is a dependable guide through the IP maze without ever losing the joy of the dream.
