Andrew Gish's practice focuses on technically complex patent and trade secret matters before district courts, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, the International Trade Commission, and the Federal Circuit. His electrical engineering background and industry experience provide him with a detailed understanding of advanced technology.Andrew has represented clients in patent infringement matters involving wireless data transmission, automatic audio/video recognition, networking security, RFID, semiconductor manufacture, microprocessor design, solar cells, LED lighting, block chain, internet transactions, ridesharing, heavy equipment, clean coal, and other technologies.
For instance, in JPMorgan Chase & Co. v. DataTreasury Corp. (E.D. Tex., Case No. 5:12-cv-119), Andrew obtained a $69 million judgment for JPMorgan Chase for breach of a most favored licensee provision in a patent license. In Pi-Net International, Inc. v. JPMorgan Chase & Co. (D. Del. Case No. 1:12-cv-00282), Andrew obtained summary judgment invalidating all asserted patent claims on multiple grounds of indefiniteness, lack of enablement, and failure of written description. This result effectively ended the plaintiff’s previously successful patent litigation campaign, which had targeted dozens of technology companies and financial institutions. And, in Google LLC v. Network-1 Technologies, Inc. (Fed. Cir. Case Nos. 2016-2509, 2016-2510, 2016-2511, 2016-2512), Andrew convinced the Federal Circuit to overrule the Patent Trial and Appeal Board and adopt Google's dispositive claim construction with respect to every single one of 70 claims at issue in four patents.
Andrew’s litigation practice is complemented by his experience handling IP transactions, as well as the IP aspects of large mergers and acquisitions. For instance, Andrew led the diligence of patent assets in The Walt Disney Company’s $4 billion acquisition of Lucasfilm Ltd. He leverages this combined litigation and transactional expertise to counsel technology companies regarding patent portfolio development, intellectual property strategy, and freedom to operate.
Andrew previously practiced in the Patent and Technology Litigation group at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, where he routinely led intellectual property matters involving advanced technology. Prior to his legal career, Andrew worked at Intel Corporation in various research and development, microprocessor design, and semiconductor manufacturing departments. Andrew graduated summa cum laude with a master of science in electrical engineering from the University of Southern California, where he was recognized as the top electrical engineering student in his graduating class.
Andrew also has extensive pro bono experience, including representing clients seeking asylum, appealing death penalty verdicts, and filing utility and design patent applications.
