James A. Glenn is a partner in Morgan Lewis's Litigation and Intellectual Property Practices. Mr. Glenn focuses his practice on both the transactional and litigation aspects of intellectual property. With experience in complex commercial litigation, Mr. Glenn represents U.S., Asian, and European clients in technology based litigation cases including patent, trade secret, trademark, and copyright litigation matters. His transactional intellectual property practice covers a broad range of technological fields and includes all aspects of a client's intellectual property needs. In addition to prosecuting patents, negotiating licenses, and handling contracts, Mr. Glenn uses his technological background to analyze a client's specific products and practices in order to evaluate and manage the client's specific patent, trade secret, copyright, and trademark portfolios.
Mr. Glenn earned his J.D. from the University of South Carolina School of Law in 2001. While in law school, he was a member of the South Carolina Environmental Law Journal, the Order of Barristers, and was selected as a member of the National Moot Court competition team. Prior to attending law school, Mr. Glenn worked as a researcher in the University of South Carolina's Silicon Carbide Laboratory, where he helped develop methodologies for the manufacture of microelectronic devices using novel semiconductor materials.
Mr. Glenn earned his M.S. in physics, with a concentration in microelectric device architecture and radiation tolerance, from Clemson University in 1996. His research focused primarily on solid-state physics, the behavior of crystalline structures, and the characteristics of microelectronic devices. While earning his M.S., his research helped evaluate the predicted sensitive volumes of EPROM chips used in high-radiation environments. He earned his B.S. in physics from Clemson University in 1993.
Mr. Glenn is admitted to practice in Texas and before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and the U.S. District Courts for the Northern, Southern, Eastern, and Western Districts of Texas.
