Neil’s true passions are any water sport, including water skiing, wakesurfing, wakeboarding and fishing.  Luckily, he can do that just about any time he wants because he lives on beautiful Lake Keowee in upstate South Carolina.  This will mark the 10th year that Neil has presented at PLI’s Patent Litigation here in Chicago, which is his favorite city to visit.
