About Kate

Kate Quisenberry focuses her practice on patent litigation in U.S. district courts and in Section 337 proceedings before the U.S International Trade Commission. Kate is known on her teams as a leader whose forward-thinking mindset and attention to detail greatly benefit her clients. Her casework spans a variety of technologies, including consumer electronics, software, non-volatile memory, semiconductor production, and various oil and gas technologies.

Kate has experience in every stage of litigation, from preparing preliminary pleadings and venue motions to participating in the trial and appeals process. This includes extensive experience marshaling discovery efforts for some of the firm’s largest clients, taking and defending fact and expert depositions, developing technical and damages positions, and managing the pretrial disclosure process. It also includes drafting claim construction briefs, dispositive motions, and pretrial motions, and arguing them in court.

During law school, Kate participated in the Catholic University of America moot court competition, where she received the award for best oralist. Prior to attending law school, Kate served as a corps member with Teach for America. Through that program, Kate spent two years teaching math and science to fourth graders at Franklin Elementary in Houston’s Magnolia Park neighborhood. Kate’s experience in the classroom still benefits her today, where her ability to translate complex technologies to user-friendly language is key in writing and arguing motions on behalf of her clients.
