Jack Wilson is a patent litigator who has secured victories for clients in patent-heavy venues across the country. As a U.S. Army veteran with a technical background in computer engineering, clients appreciate his real-world outlook, actionable advice, and pragmatic approach to the practice of law.  

Jack oversees case teams and manages the day-to-day operations of matters in U.S. District Courts, the International Trade Commission, and the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. His mission-oriented philosophy frequently results in cases moving forward on favorable terms for clients. For example, at the ITC he argued for and obtained an exclusion order on behalf of a U.S.-based company that enabled the client to access a crowded but lucrative market. In the District of Delaware, he successfully excluded the opinion of a damages expert that shielded a client from excessive damages. At the PTAB, he secured denial of multiple petitions for inter partes review that saved a client’s patents on groundbreaking medical device systems. In all matters, Jack is singularly focused on finding and pursuing the most pragmatic and cost-effective path to victory for clients.  

Jack represents clients of all sizes, from Fortune 200 companies to startups to solo inventors. He concentrates his practice in the computer technology space, with a particular focus on consumer products, internet-of-things devices, and other customer-facing technologies such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, home appliances, toys, solar panels, televisions, set-top boxes, and smartphone apps.  

Before joining Fish & Richardson, Jack served as an ordnance officer in a short-range air and missile defense battalion in the U.S. Army. He continues to support those who served through his pro bono work for the Veterans Consortium and is a member of the firm’s FishSERVES affinity group. During law school, Jack was as a judicial extern for the Honorable Mark Davis of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. 

When he’s not practicing law, Jack enjoys spending time with his wife and two young children, as well as cheering for D.C. United.
