Following the arrival of Tom Schaumberg, formerly at AMS Trade LLP, in January 2022, the Washington DC boutique updated its brand to Levi Snotherly & Schaumberg, PLLC. Schaumberg's addition as principal was a another major step forward for the firm which has been on an upward trajectory since it opened its doors in 2018. His decades of ITC expertise are the perfect complement to the accumulated 15 years experience as senior investigative staff attorneys of founding partners Rett Snotherly and Benjamin Levi, who also bring to bear, respectively, five years of in-house experience as the senior patent counsel at a large international electronics company and over fifteen years of private practice in litigation, specifically ITC litigation.
