Background

Jackob Ben-Ezra is an Associate in Fish & Richardson’s Houston office. Mr. Ben-Ezra focuses his practice on patent litigation. In his years of practice, he has represented high-tech companies at the forefront of technology and their industry in complex suits in federal courts around the country. Those complex suits span a wide range of technologies, including computer software and hardware technologies and related source code, web-based applications, wireless communication networks and devices, telephony, battery technology, industrial printing presses, sales force automation, and oil and gas devices, as a few examples.

Mr. Ben-Ezra has worked closely with experts and engineers on those cases to analyze his clients’ most complicated issues, and works diligently to formulate critical case strategy including with respect to claim construction and validity. He has experience in all phases of patent litigation, including pleadings, discovery, dispositive motions, technical expert reports and claim construction proceedings. He has managed discovery and technical teams in complex patent litigations, argued in federal court, taken and defended critical 30(b)(6) depositions, and led teams in pivotal mock trials. Additionally, Mr. Ben-Ezra has experience with pre-suit investigations, patent portfolio analyses, and post-grant proceedings.

Mr. Ben-Ezra also dedicates his time to pro bono work, including in conjunction with the Texas Civil Rights Project and actual innocence projects for those who have been wrongfully convicted and imprisoned.

Mr. Ben-Ezra earned his J.D., with honors, from The University of Texas School of Law in 2010, where he was a Chief Articles Editor of the Texas Intellectual Property Law Journal. He earned his B.S., with high honors, in computer science from The University of Texas at Austin in 2007, where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa.

After law school, Mr. Ben-Ezra served as a law clerk to Judge Nancy M. Koenig, Magistrate Judge of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas.
