Litigator Sarika Patel defends clients in patent validity challenges and patent infringement actions.

A skilled litigator and savvy strategist, Sarika helps forge paths toward effective resolution of disputes through motions to dismiss, aggressive advocacy, or swift and quiet negotiated settlement, when appropriate. Clients rely on her thorough infringement analyses to avoid running afoul of other patent holders’ rights, as well as her guidance on transactional matters, including breach of contract, misappropriation of trade secrets, and fraudulent inducement claims.

Sarika is experienced in drafting patent applications for prosecution before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. She knows what makes a strong and effective patent, which helps her craft winning arguments to support clients’ claims at the patent office and in court.
