Stephen F. Roth specializes in intellectual property litigation and has been practicing in that area for over 20 years. Mr. Roth's approach to litigation centers on the client's business goals. Mr. Roth never loses sight of the client's ultimate goal of resolving disputes in a swift and efficient fashion. Mr. Roth understands the expense and disruption that litigation often entails, and attempts to come to a resolution with the least disruption to the client's business.

Prior to attending law school, Mr. Roth conducted psychological research on human perception and has several published papers in that area. Mr. Roth employs that background in understanding the human factor dynamics in complex business and personal decisions.

Mr. Roth is actively involved in the training of the firm's litigation associates, and sits on the Board of the John C. Lifland American Inn of Court, one of the first Inns of Court in the country specializing in intellectual property law. He also lectures frequently on litigation, professionalism, and intellectual property issues.
