Jay Nuttall is a nationally recognized patent litigator that companies depend on “when the stakes are high.” Clients attribute Jay’s success to his quick thinking, effective cross-examination skills, and ability to articulate complex legal and technical issues.
His substantial trial experience spans a range of technologies, including telecommunications, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, electronic systems and methods, software, lighting, and chemical processes.
Jay has successfully served as lead counsel on patent, trade secret, copyright, trademark, and other technology related matters. Some of his significant victories include trying a complex 11-patent case in which the client won on all issues and received attorneys’ fees; obtaining a jury verdict of willful infringement and a $78 million judgment; and defeating a multi-patent infringement claim alleging more than $4 billion in accused sales.
Jay serves as lead counsel for both petitioners and patent owners in post grant review proceedings, including inter partes review (IPR). He also counsels clients in the development and protection of intellectual property, including worldwide patent and trademark protection and due diligence investigations.
According to clients, Jay “consistently and successfully litigates against well-known high-profile attorneys who have been practicing many more years than he has.” Clients also note that Jay “communicates well,” “is fully engaged and committed to the client,” and “has a really good understanding of what our business objectives are [and the] efforts needed” to achieve them.
Jay is the managing partner of Steptoe’s Chicago office and also serves on the firm’s executive committee.
