He was admitted to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office in 1974, and since then has obtained a wide range of patents for his clients, ranging from financial trading systems to neuromedical measurement devices. Intellectual property disputes contribute to Bruce D. Sunstein’s expertise as a witness and arbitrator, and he is expected to give patent law expert testimony in antitrust litigation in In re Nexium (Esomeprazole) Antitrust Litigation, scheduled for trial in October 2014. He has also served as an intellectual property law expert in a dispute over Massachusetts’ corporate excise tax liability, which settled during trial.
