Victor has been lead trial counsel before many federal trial courts throughout the United States, including the District Courts for New York, California, Delaware, Virginia, New Jersey, Arizona, and Minnesota, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. He has also managed multijurisdictional, cross-border litigations.
