Background

Chris Dryer’s practice emphasizes patent litigation and appeals. He has experience litigating intellectual property cases in the U.S. International Trade Commission, federal district courts, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit involving a wide array of technologies, such as network protocols, flash memory, lithium-ion batteries, streaming video, and fiber optics.  Mr. Dryer also has significant experience with IPR proceedings relating to his litigation practice, including the first case in which a successful IPR challenge caused the International Trade Commission to set aside remedial orders relating to the invalidated patent. He is known for his brief-writing skills, including claim construction briefs, motions, and appeal briefs.

From 2012-2013, Mr. Dryer clerked for the Honorable Timothy B. Dyk at the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Prior to attending law school, Mr. Dryer worked as a consultant focusing on software engineering work involving object-oriented programming and relational databases.
