Mr. Proctor joined Quinn Emanuel in 2001 and has been a partner in the Los Angeles office since 2006. His practice focuses on complex, high-stakes trial-level litigation, particularly when involving copyrights, trademarks, trade-secrets or other intellectual property, or allegations of fraud, breach of contract, unfair competition, antitrust or RICO violations, or other business torts. In addition to trial work, Mr. Proctor spends a substantial portion of his time on state and federal court appeals. Recently, Mr. Proctor has represented Mattel in its much-publicized legal battle with MGA, Samsung in its disputes with Apple, Snapchat in defending against alleged partnership claims, and other entities and individuals in prominent disputes nationwide.
Before joining Quinn Emanuel, and after graduating in the top 2% of his class from NYU Law, Mr. Proctor clerked for the Hon. Charles P. Sifton, Chief Judge of the Eastern District of New York.
