Many patent litigators approach each case in the same formulaic way – even if it’s overly time consuming and doesn’t serve the best interests of their clients. I take a more strategic, tailored approach to patent litigation that focuses on understanding my client’s precise business goals at the very beginning and then determining exactly what needs to happen to resolve the dispute and achieve their goals in the most effective, cost-efficient way possible.
Leader of the Intellectual Property Transactions Practice Group, Jared Hoggan is an accomplished patent litigator and former engineer who combines his deep problem-solving experience and technical background to help businesses navigate the complex world of patent litigation and licensing. He guides clients through every phase of litigation, from pre-filing investigations and patent valuations to post-trial briefing and appeal. Jared has helped clients reach favorable outcomes in numerous patent disputes before federal courts throughout the country, the U.S. International Trade Commission and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
With clients ranging from global Fortune 500 companies and patent licensing consortiums to growing tech startups and universities, Jared has developed litigation strategies and licensing programs covering a variety of technologies, including wireless telecommunications, Wi-Fi, software applications, cable networks, computer hardware and medical devices.
A significant part of Jared’s practice is focused on resolving validity, infringement and licensing issues for clients that own or seek to license patents essential to wireless mobile telecommunications standards. Royalty stacks and FRAND issues within these technologies result in complex considerations for both licensors and prospective licensees, requiring Jared to work closely with his clients on either side of a dispute to distribute appropriate royalties while maintaining a fair and efficient system.
Before entering private practice, Jared worked as a judicial clerk for the Honorable Kimberly Moore of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. While studying at The University of Texas School of Law, he served as Executive Articles Editor for the Texas Intellectual Property Law Journal, and was the 2008 National Champion of the Giles S. Rich Interscholastic Moot Court competition sponsored by the American Intellectual Property Law Association. Before law school, Jared worked as an engineer in the automotive industry, focusing on the design and manufacturing of glass products for a Tier 1 automotive supplier.
