Jason E. Gettleman brings an electrical and computer engineering background to his services, which focus on patent litigation in the electrical and mechanical arts. Jason practices primarily before US District Courts and the US International Trade Commission (ITC), and he is also engaged in patent post grant proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, patent portfolio analysis, infringement and invalidity analysis, and IP due diligence. In 2018, Jason helped secure a $268 million verdict in the US District Court for the Central District of California on behalf of the Alfred E. Mann Foundation in a patent infringement action against Cochlear.
Jason has recently represented clients in a high-stakes IP dispute before the ITC helping defend against exclusion orders barring the importation of wireless and networking products into the United States. In addition to wireless and networking technology, Jason has represented clients in a wide range of industries, including integrated circuit technology, semiconductor materials and manufacturing, mobile phones, printer technologies, image sensors, light emitting diodes, and a broad range of other consumer electronics and software.
Prior to attending law school, Jason was an associate design engineer with a major New York engineering consulting firm, where he designed copper and fiber telecommunications systems. As a design engineer, he worked on the Phoenix Project, the name given to the reconstruction of the Pentagon after the September 11, 2001, attacks.
Jason spent three years in the Morgan Lewis Tokyo office where he assisted Japanese clients with US intellectual property matters, including patent litigation support. He also counseled US companies on Japan-related IP matters. During his time in Tokyo, Jason frequently lectured Japanese clients on US intellectual property rights.
