Firm Leadership

Overview

The Executive Committee, composed of Brian Batzli, Andy Ehard and Tony Zeuli, represents the transition of leadership that has emerged from the John D. Gould era and the core group of attorneys who built the firm into the full service intellectual property law practice that exists today. Though the firm has eight offices and a staff continually growing to meet the needs of clients and emerging technology, it holds to the core values that have contributed to its success from the beginning.
