Ms. Pham is a patent attorney in the firm’s Silicon Valley office. Representing clients at all stages of development from start-ups to public companies, she crafts and implements intellectual property strategies aligned to the particular business goals of each client. She also helps defend innovators from opportunists, competitors, and/or the insidious efforts of patent trolls that seek to claim others’ innovations as their own.
Ms. Pham counsels clients on strategies for acquisition, acceleration, enforcement, and defense of domestic and foreign patents. She has represented clients in every phase of patent preparation and prosecution, including reissue, reexamination, and appeals to the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) and the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Her practice also includes developing and implementing litigation strategies for U.S. District Court and International Trade Commission (ITC) patent proceedings, preparation of opinion letters regarding non-infringement and invalidity, and due diligence related to venture capital financing and acquisitions.
A need for Ms. Pham’s assistance may be triggered when a company develops a new product/service, announces a new product/service (e.g., at a trade show), is on the verge of a funding event or acquisition, wishes to increase its valuation, receives a cease-and-desist letter or complaint, learns of litigation activity in their industry, or otherwise wishes to prepare itself as best possible in a competitive technological market.
