Attorney Profile

Benjamin has been named a Rising Star in Northern California for IP Litigation by SuperLawyers magazine three times since 2015.   Trained as a rocket scientist, Benjamin has served as lead counsel in dozens of patent and trade  secret actions covering a wide range of technologies from video games to nutraceuticals, from semiconductors to sonar mounts, and from e-commerce to many aspects of mobile telecom. Benjamin also frequently handles breach of contract, trademark, unfair competition.

Benjamin has been privileged to represent a roster of incredible companies and individuals, including Ancestry.com, the Walgreen Company, Insoniac Games, and Creative Mobile Technologies, LLC.  He believes the secret to providing outstanding results and service is no secret at all—listen to your client; learn their business, their objectives, and their sensitivities; and then work relentlessly to add value. Sam Jadallah, Founder and CEO of Tyto Life, captured Ben’s approach to client service when he said, “After one meeting and a few follow-up calls, Ben was an expert in both our technology and core business plan. He understood the nuances because he approached my problems like they were his own.” Natasa Karambatsos, Director of Corporate Strategy at CMT Group, had the following to say: “Mr. Singer is a pleasure to work with. He is bright, detail-oriented and creative as an attorney, with a shrewd and rational mind for business."
