"I worked with Jeff for many years in the 1990s as J-STAR Industries’ VP of Engineering.   J-STAR manufacturered agricultural material handling equipment, serving the dairy and beef feedlot industries.  A competitor knocked-off our largest and most successful product line, to the point of encouraging its customers to use interchangeable J-STAR parts to make quick field repairs to its silo unloaders.  Multiple patents on our silo product had expired, but Jeff developed an array of evidence and expert reports to establish a product configuration trade dress strategy to stop this blatant copying.  Through his expertise, we successfully litigated a jury trial and forced our competitor to change its product.  Although J-STAR has since dissolved, I would not hesitate working with Jeff again on an intellectual property matter or litigation."
