Ryan Yagura, Chair of the Firm’s Intellectual Property and Technology Practice, steers some of the world’s leading technology companies through their complex patent infringement matters. An accomplished trial litigator, Ryan has extensive experience leading offensive and defensive cases in District Court and ITC litigation. This includes patent infringement, trade secret misappropriation, breach of technology licensing or development contracts, standard setting, antitrust, and other technology-intense claims.
