Member ANTHONY CHALIFOUX represents a wide variety of clients in civil litigation and transactional business matters with an emphasis on intellectual property law. 

Mr. Chalifoux prides himself on the ability to not only assist clients with day-to-day legal questions but, also, navigate them through all phases of complex litigation when necessary.  Mr. Chalifoux is dedicated to effective, early resolutions of disputes.  When that has not been possible, he has prevailed in each and all of the matters for which he has served as trial counsel. 

Mr. Chalifoux’s intellectual property law practice ranges from drafting and negotiation of various contracts to strategizing and filing trademark applications as well as litigating infringement and misappropriation claims related to patents, copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets. 

In the construction industry, Mr. Chalifoux focuses on public contracting issues, oversight of the bidding process, delay claims, insurance defense, and contractor licensing compliance. 

Mr. Chalifoux uses these skill sets to also serve clients in the craft beer and legal cannabis industries wherein he additionally advises on entity formation, regulatory compliance, and lease negotiations.

Mr. Chalifoux started his career at the firm in 2009 as a Law Clerk and, eventually, became an Associate and, then, Senior Attorney before being elevated to Member.  Originally from Massachusetts, Mr. Chalifoux is thankful for the opportunity to practice in San Diego.  In his free time, he enjoys golf, softball, and the vibrant local craft beer scene.
