Shawn G. Hansen is an intellectual property partner based in our Los Angeles office and also maintains an office in our San Francisco office to work with clients and handle matters in Northern California.
Shawn has built a successful track record over two decades of litigating and trying patent and other intellectual property cases in federal courts throughout the United States. He excels at synthesizing cutting edge technologies with legal strategy and is adept with technologies from software and semiconductors to pharmaceuticals and medical diagnostics. And he brings to bear exceptional capabilities to communicate complex technology to lay audiences and to keep the forest and the trees in focus at once.
I am dedicated to helping research institutions and other clients in the life sciences, technology, and media industries craft and execute IP strategies optimized for their business objectives, from high stakes litigation to tech transfer and licensing.
In our progressively online and globalized economy, with litigation finance revolutionizing access to the courts, the strengths and vulnerabilities of American enterprises increasingly hinge on intellectual property.
