Yasser represents both plaintiffs and defendants from a wide array of industries in a broad range of business, commercial, and energy litigation matters. Over the past several years, Yasser has focused his practice on cases involving technology and intellectual property disputes, trade secret theft, and unfair competition claims. While Yasser particularly enjoys handling complex intellectual property disputes, he has experience with a variety of litigation matters, ranging from franchise-related controversies to contract disputes to insurance and re-insurance coverage claims.
As a former transactional attorney prior to joining the firm’s litigation practice, Yasser also has leveraged his transactional background to help clients solve complex transaction-based disputes, business organization controversies, and derivative actions. Yasser is able to dissect complex business and commercial disputes from the perspective of both a litigator and a transactional lawyer – an asset from which many of his clients have benefited.
Yasser’s primary focus in every litigation matter is finding a business solution that makes his client happy. An avid negotiator, Yasser uses his negotiation prowess to bring about favorable results for his clients in settlement proceedings and mediations. But Yasser also understands that litigation sometimes cannot be avoided and is fully equipped to fight for his clients and to advance their positions in jury trials, bench trials, and arbitrations.
As a native Nicaraguan, Yasser is a proud supporter of the firm’s diversity initiatives and an active member in the Hispanic Bar Association.
