Cora R. Holt is an experienced litigator at both the trial and appellate levels. She represents clients in patent disputes before federal district courts, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and the U.S. Supreme Court. While Cora handles cases involving a variety of technologies, her practice focuses on the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and life sciences industries.
She has represented clients in cases involving human therapeutic antibodies, chemical compounds, medical devices, drug delivery systems, soybean plants, and engineered microorganisms. Her work also includes significant experience litigating Hatch-Waxman and biosimilars cases.
Cora’s practice spans all phases of litigation. At the trial level, her experience includes pre-suit investigation, complex fact and expert discovery, claim construction, motions practice, and trial. At the appellate level, Cora draws on her Federal Circuit clerkship to provide clients with top-level appellate brief-writing and strategic advice.
In addition to her patent litigation work, Cora assists clients in portfolio counseling matters and proceedings before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). She also devotes significant time to pro bono work, particularly the representation of veterans in cases before the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, and the Federal Circuit.
