Baker Botts L.L.P. stands out as one of the few general practice firms to offer a seasoned team of patent prosecution and litigation specialists. Adept at drafting and filing US and foreign patent prosecutions, the practice also distinguishes itself through its successful PTAB experts who shoulder a busy inter partes review and covered business method review caseload. In August 2020, the team gained an experienced prosecution and licensing specialist in Palo Alto when Christopher Palermo joined from Hickman Palermo Becker Bingham L.L.P. , now Hickman Becker Bingham Ledesma LLP. The technology, electronics and telecom industries remain among the firm’s core sectors. Robert Scheinfeld in New York is the chair of the IP practice, with Christa Brown-Sanford in Dallas acting as his deputy. Palo Alto’s Hogene Choi and Dallas’ Samir Bhavsar jointly lead the prosecution team. The PTAB trial group lead duo consists of Brian Oaks in Austin and Chad Walters in Dallas.
