Jared Hartzman helps clients protect their innovations at the U.S. International Trade Commission, as well as in U.S. District Courts and appeals to the Federal Circuit.Working across a variety of industries, including consumer electronics, telecommunications, and automotive, Jared’s flexible and wide-ranging technical background enables him to quickly familiarize himself with a vast array of disparate technologies and techniques.
Jared’s work in the ITC has seen his representation of multiple Fortune 500 companies, including General Motors, HP, MediaTek, and LG, among others. In one notable success, he helped a Fish team secure a pivotal win for LG, HP, and MediaTek in a case involving content protection technologies by demonstrating, in multiple ways, noninfringement of the asserted patents. His appellate experience is no less extensive — backed by a clerkship to the Federal Circuit, Jared brings the benefit of his first-hand exposure to varied and effective appellate strategies, as well as sound jurisprudence and courtroom procedure, to every appeal.
Jared also has broad patent litigation experience in U.S. District Courts, including fact and expert discovery, claim construction, motions practice, bench and jury trials, post-trial motions, and appeals. Jared has also handled fact and expert witness preparation (during discovery and trial), defended expert witnesses in deposition, and argued motions in limine. Separately, Jared has experience drafting petitions for inter partes review before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Jared is a registered patent attorney by the USPTO.
In addition to his patent litigation practice, Jared dedicates time to pro bono matters, including asylum, immigration, and LGBTQ cases for Immigration Equality, Capital Area Immigrants’ Rights, and the LGBT Bar Association.
