Kevin Post is a partner with Ropes & Gray. He works extensively with high-technology and life science companies handling their complex patent disputes. He has litigated patent cases in nearly every significant patent jurisdiction, including the International Trade Commission, the District of Delaware, the Northern District of California, the Eastern District of Texas, the Eastern District of Virginia, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, and the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit on behalf of companies in a variety of technical fields, including telecommunications, electronics, computer systems and software, network architecture and security, e-payments, e-commerce, imaging systems, GPS technology, process control systems, mechanical devices, pharmaceuticals, and biotechnology.
Kevin has tried multiple cases involving standard-essential patents and RAND licensing issues, including breach of contract cases. From providing licensing support, patent portfolio analysis and due diligence to handling all aspects of trial preparation and trial, Kevin’s experience has touched on all phases of IP litigation.
Kevin recently represented Godo Kaisha IP Bridge 1 at the Federal Circuit in a decision against TCL Communication where the Federal Circuit determined that compliance with a standard can be proof of infringement and the question is a matter for the jury (i.e., not a question of law). See Godo Kaisha IP Bridge I v. TCL Communication Technology Holdings Ltd. (August 4, 2020, Fed. Cir.).
