Dana’s patent litigation experience includes serving as lead trial counsel and representing clients before the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.  In his most recent patent trial—a competitor case—an Eastern District of Texas jury returned a verdict in favor of Dana’s client, finding willful infringement and awarding full lost-profits damages.  Dana also has extensive experience defending companies against claims of patent infringement asserted by non-practicing entities.
