John Dials

Of Counsel

John has been of counsel with Fourscore since its inception. He works as a trusted advisor to numerous start-ups and established technology companies, drawing on years of experience as a lawyer and engineer in high tech industries. He helps his clients navigate risk and secure critical intellectual property rights through various means including licenses and technology transfer agreements in addition to securing protections for client-developed intellectual property.

He also has extensive experience successfully resolving intellectual property and contract disputes inside and outside of judicial forums. When not working he likes to get outdoors, hit the gym, or experiment in the kitchen. Although allegedly a pacifist, he is a big fan of boxing and mixed martial arts. He occasionally enjoys unwinding in a no-frills bar, especially one with live music.
