Timothy Carroll, a member of our Intellectual Property and Technology group, is viewed by clients and peers as a go-to patent litigator, and has earned the respect of his peers for his numerous successes litigating patent cases involving cutting-edge technology in such areas as medical devices, green technologies, mobile apps, location-based services, messaging systems, Wi-Fi-enabled thermostats, and content management platforms, as well as trade secret disputes involving defense contractors, defense systems and aerospace products. Representing both leading and emerging technology companies.

Tim has secured trial wins and preliminary injunctions, forced adversaries to stipulate to non-infringement, won summary judgment awards, earned substantial attorneys’ fee awards and prevailed in claim-construction arguments.

Tim routinely leads many joint-defense groups involving some of the largest and most sophisticated companies and law firms in the US. His national, high-stakes practice, impressive win-loss record, aggressive but fair approach, and exceptional advocacy skills have all contributed to the strong rapport he has built with clients and colleagues.

Tim recently achieved several victories for companies forced to take aggressive steps to protect their intellectual property, or to defend against claims of patent infringement and/or trade secret misappropriation.

Tim also has extensive experience in inter partes reviews (IPRs) and other post-grant proceedings. In addition to litigation, Tim has counseled more than 100 global businesses, including two Fortune 15 companies, on adopting and implementing lawful complaint information management programs as well as on e-discovery and litigation readiness initiatives.
