With nearly two decades of practice in intellectual property law, Marti offers her clients a wide array of experience in technology litigation and counseling services.

Marti has represented clients in courts throughout the United States with respect to patent, trade secret, unfair competition, antitrust, and internet law matters. Marti has litigated disputes involving an extensive variety of technologies, including medical devices, pharmaceuticals, computer hardware and software, financial systems, e-commerce, internet technologies, food processing and engineering, telecommunications systems, data transmission, semiconductors, and electronic displays (including micromirror array and LCD technology). Selected representations include:
  • securing a summary judgment win for a defendant in an antitrust case premised on allegations of sham patent litigation and Walker Process fraud;
  • successfully resolving a trade secret dispute involving chemical and processing engineering technology on behalf of a leading flavor and fragrance company;
  • successfully arbitrating a trade secret misappropriation claim brought against a major pharmaceutical company; and
  • representing a leading cellular services provider in multiple patent infringement litigations and licensing negotiations, including obtaining a victory on summary judgment as well as a dismissal at the pleading stage.

Marti has also counseled technology companies regarding intellectual property transactions, licensing negotiations, freedom to operate determinations, electronic discovery parameters, and damages evaluations.

Prior to joining Gish PLLC, Marti was Counsel at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, LLP where she practiced in the Patent and Technology Litigation group.

Marti’s pro bono practice includes nonprofit intellectual property investigations, Social Security benefits and unemployment insurance representation, as well as prisoner abuse cases and work for the Innocence Project.
