Karan’s litigation practice focuses on representing clients in actions filed in federal district courts across the country and at the International Trade Commission. He has substantial experience in all major aspects of litigation, including pre-suit diligence, managing discovery, deposing fact and expert witnesses, conducting cross-examination of witnesses at trial, and pre-trial and post-trial briefing. In his litigation practice, Karan has experience working with various technologies, such as microlithography and optics, portable device power management, object-relational mapping technology, microprocessor design and operation, digital image processing technology, cellular communication standards, audio and video decoding technologies, and consumer electronics (e.g., televisions, mobile phones, tablets).

In addition, Karan has assisted clients with IP portfolio assessment and IP due diligence (offensive and defensive).
