Global law firm White & Case LLP continues to expand its Intellectual Property Practice and Global Technology Industry Group with the addition of Jordan Coyle as a partner in Washington, DC.
"Section 337 investigations pose an enormous risk to companies," said Yar Chaikovsky, Head of White & Case's Intellectual Property Practice. "As technology companies and investors prioritize securing supply chains, the fast-paced nature of these investigations means their popularity will only accelerate. Jordan is a market-leading IP litigator, with an impressive track record in successfully navigating Section 337 complaints. His addition further solidifies our preeminent position as a one-stop shop for high-stakes IP litigation across the technology sector."
Coyle specializes in Section 337 investigations before the US International Trade Commission (ITC), representing technology companies in disputes involving intellectual property right claims, including allegations of patent and trademark infringement. He has managed all aspects of Section 337 investigations, including 17 trials, from pre-complaint counseling and diligence to Federal Circuit appeals, across technologies including smartphones, tablets, televisions, flash memory, semiconductors and medical devices.
"White & Case is known for advising on high-profile, complex matters across the technology industry, and successfully navigating ITC litigation remains a priority for many of our clients," said Nicole Erb, White & Case's Americas Regional Section Head of Trade, IP and White Collar. "Adding a talented ITC litigator like Jordan further strengthens our position as a leading choice for market participants across the full spectrum of IP matters in the technology sector. We're delighted to welcome him to our team."
Coyle's addition continues the expansion of White & Case's Intellectual Property Practice, following the recent addition of prominent IP litigator, Yar Chaikovsky, who was recently appointed Head of the Firm's Intellectual Property Practice, as well as partners Phil Ou, Bruce Yen and David Okano, who all joined the Firm's Silicon Valley office earlier this year.
