Sturgis Sobin has represented clients in more than 65 intellectual property cases, including 25 trials, before the U.S. International Trade Commission under Section 337, as well as in related U.S. District Court litigation. This fast-paced litigation has involved patent, trademark, copyright and trade secret issues, and has often required the development and implementation of complex worldwide litigation strategies.

Mr. Sobin has served as lead trial counsel in multiple large and complex trials covering a range of technologies and commercially valuable IP rights. He has also served as lead global managing counsel for multinational intellectual property and commercial disputes. He is recognized as a leading ITC Section 337 practitioner by Chambers USA, with sources noting he is an “excellent lawyer” and "very perceptive in identifying the key issues in matters and developing winning approaches."
