Mark Grant is experienced in semiconductor technology, electronics, computers, software, and related fields; his sphere of influence ranges to the Far East, specifically Japan, Taiwan and Korea.

We represent some of the world's most advanced semiconductor manufacturers, as well as numerous Silicon Valley start-up companies. Representing a broad range of companies with both small and large patent portfolios, we have opposed some of the world's largest semiconductor, electronics and computer companies, and have been responsible for the generation of hundreds of millions of dollars in licensing revenue. During these licensing negotiations we have become extremely familiar with the patent portfolios, patent filing strategies and licensing policies of many global semiconductor companies, including patent cross-licenses and technology agreements, as well as semiconductor manufacturing joint ventures.

Prior to forming the firm, Grant was Vice President, General Counsel at Mosel Vitelic Inc (Taiwan based semiconductor manufacturer with $2 Billion in sales), and Director of Intellectual Property at National Semiconductor Corporation. He also held engineering and management positions at various companies, including Texas Instruments, General Motors, and Chrysler Corporation.

Mr. Grant was lead attorney for Nichia Corporation, successfully defending ITC litigation (Rohm vs. Nichia in “Certain Semiconductor Light Emitting Devices…”) and multiple Federal litigation cases (Rohm vs. Nichia, Cree vs. Nichia, Boston University vs. Nichia, North Carolina State University vs. Nichia). He managed and was lead strategist for the Mosel Vitelic litigation, successfully defending multiple actions including ITC litigation (Micron vs. Mosel in “Certain Semiconductor Memory Devices…”), multiple federal court actions, as well as anti-dumping actions.

Practice areas include: Litigation strategy and management; general counseling of business matters; risk assessment; analysis and purchase of patents to use in negotiations and litigation; product analysis to determine patent infringement; and preparation and coordination of design programs to avoid infringement; establishment of patent departments and licensing programs, as well as United States and foreign patent-filing programs and the establishment and staffing of entire legal departments.

Licensed to practice in California, New York, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Supreme Court, U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, U.S. Tax Court, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal and 9th Circuits, and the U.S. District Courts, Northern/Eastern/Central/South Districts of California.
