Patent litigator Jonathan Bright protects his clients’ complex, wide-ranging technologies in U.S. District Courts and before the International Trade Commission.

Jonathan’s clients depend on his ability to craft litigation strategies that align with their overall business practices and priorities. In addition to his work in various District Courts and at the ITC, he has experience with trade secret law in state court and with post-grant petitions filed before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.

Attentive to the minute technical details of each case, Jonathan pursues a thorough understanding of his clients’ technology and its journey from ideation to consumer. His work has spanned telecommunications, display and image sensors, computer memory, mobile operating systems, graphical user interfaces, front-end radio architecture, food packaging, and nanotechnology. He also has experience with technology essential to standard, such as 5G, 4G LTE, 802.11, Bluetooth, and JEDEC standards.

In his active pro bono practice, Jonathan works with the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation to advocate for the rights of tenants in landlord-tenant disputes. He has also provided pro bono patent prosecution services and helped dismiss a six-figure judgment for a client in a defamation case.

Prior to law school, Jonathan worked as a graduate research assistant at the Georgia Tech Research Institute, where he helped develop missile warning systems by modeling threats and their response to IRCM at the circuit level. He also interned at ATA Engineering, a consulting firm, where he conducted structural analysis studies using finite element software.

When he’s not litigating, Jonathan can often be found outdoors enjoying a camping or hiking expedition with his wife.
