Nish S. Hossain

Nish Hossain focuses her practice on intellectual property litigation. She assists clients, which include various high technology companies, in resolving patents trademark, copyright and trade secret disputes.

What do you focus on?

My litigation experience focuses on patent and trademark infringement issues. Leveraging my engineering background, I advise clients in the evaluation and protection of their technologies, including electronics, hardware, software, biomedical devices, GPUs and semiconductors.

I have been involved in all phases of litigation including pre-litigation counseling and early assessment, pleadings, fact discovery, motions practice, expert deposition preparations, Daubert motions and trial. In addition, I have experience drafting case management statements, filing inter partes reviews, coordinating discovery, negotiating settlements and prosecuting patents.

What do you see on the horizon?

As the societal impact of leading tech companies becomes more apparent, I believe these leaders of innovation will have to adapt to be more globally conscious. I believe a part of becoming more globally conscious will be an affirmative move toward less protectionist behavior over technologies integral to societal progress. With the new hurdles in the patent office, an eye toward a greater worldwide impact and the resources to shape the tech space, I believe these companies will monetize less on technologies that are vital to social progress and work to oust entities that have exploited the patent system to thwart technological growth. I am excited to advise clients about their patent strategies in this diverse and quickly changing landscape.
