Mr. Ainsworth is a Director who concentrates his practice in the area of patent litigation.  He has represented clients in patent cases in federal courts and before the United States International Trade Commission in the pharmaceutical, consumer products, electronics, and e-commerce industries.   He has extensive experience representing clients in the pharmaceutical industry in litigation arising under the Hatch-Waxman Act.

Mr. Ainsworth began his legal career as a law clerk for the Honorable Sue L.

In addition to his patent litigation practice, Mr. Ainsworth has represented leading civil rights organizations on state and federal civil rights issues.  In 2011, the National LGBT Bar Association named Mr. Ainsworth one of the “Best LGBT Lawyers Under 40” in recognition of both his accomplishments as a patent litigator and his contributions to the advancement of LGBT civil rights.
