Highlights

Alex Pechette focuses his practice on patent trials and appeals. He practices primarily in district court but has also appeared before the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, the International Trade Commission, and the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.

About Alexander

Alex has experience in all phases of litigation, from pre-suit diligence to appeal, and in an array of technologies, including surgical robotics, seismometry, immersion lithography, oilfield equipment, compound bows, aerogels, and computer software.

In addition to his patent litigation practice, Alex is also committed to providing pro bono services to those in need. Partnering with the Political Asylum/Immigration Representation (PAIR) Project, Kids in Need of Defense (KIND), and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), he has represented multiple asylum applicants and pursued claims for civil rights violations. Furthermore, through Northeast Legal Aid, he has defended numerous tenants in eviction proceedings.

During law school, Alex worked at a leading litigation funder, where he performed due diligence on patent litigation funding opportunities. He also supplemented his legal curriculum with MBA-level coursework in accounting, finance, negotiations, business strategy, and marketing, earning a certificate from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.

Before launching his legal career, Alex was an engineering consultant in the nuclear energy industry. His work involved thermodynamic and fluid-dynamic analysis of nuclear power plant safety systems under simulated accident conditions. He also prepared feasibility reports in support of power uprates at nine reactors around the country.

From 2021 to 2022, Alex served as a law clerk to Chief Judge Kimberly A. Moore of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
