PETER PERKOWSKI

Peter assists companies and individuals on the full range of intellectual property matters: protection and registration, licensing and monetization, and enforcement and litigation defense. Peter also has extensive experience litigating a wide variety of disputes for clients, from trial-level to appeals, in both state and federal court. He focuses his practice mainly on clients in the creative-cultural industries: arts, entertainment, sports, tech, and start-ups, to name a few. Peter started his career advising clients and litigating high-profile cases at the Los Angeles entertainment powerhouse Troop Steuber Pasich Reddick & Tobey, followed by stints as an associate and partner at top international firms Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher and Winston & Strawn. After 17 years, Peter launched his own practice in 2015, and now uses his big-firm training to serve clients in a small-firm environment.
