Jeffrey M. Theodore

Steptoe & Johnson LLP

Jeffrey Theodore represents domestic and international clients on both plaintiff and defense sides of complex commercial and intellectual property disputes, particularly trade secret and copyright litigation. He has argued appeals in federal and state appellate courts, served as trial counsel in federal jury trials, and has appeared before many different arbitral bodies.

Jeff played a leading role in the defense of two of the largest trade secret misappropriation suits filed in the United States in the last five years, including Steptoe’s recent successful defense of a nine-figure misappropriation claim in a jury trial in federal court in Seattle.

In copyright infringement litigation to hold Cox Communications liable for its high-speed internet subscribers’ online sharing of copyrighted music files, Jeff briefed and argued the summary judgment motion that stripped Cox of its Digital Millennium Copyright Act “safe harbor” defense to contributory copyright infringement liability – the first time a cable internet provider had ever lost its DMCA “safe harbor.”

Jeff is active in pro bono matters ranging from representing death row inmates to advising the Children’s Defense Fund on child healthcare legislation. In Renchenski v. Williams, 622 F.3d 315 (3d Cir. 2010), Jeff represented a prison inmate on appeal after his suit against prison officials was dismissed by the district court.

This victory in the Third Circuit made new law protecting prisoners’ rights under the Due Process Clause and established new procedures to ensure that pro se prisoner plaintiffs have an adequate opportunity to take discovery.
