Valerie is a partner in the Los Angeles office.  Her practice focuses on complex business litigation, with an emphasis on intellectual property disputes.  She has extensive trial experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants in state and federal courts throughout the country.  While her practice focuses on intellectual property litigation, Valerie has experience in numerous other areas, including securities litigation, products liability, contract, employment and negligence actions.  Valerie has been recognized as a Top 100 lawyer in Los Angeles, lauded as a “seasoned trial lawyer,” and a “Woman Leader in Tech Law”.

As trial counsel, Valerie has always obtained a complete victory – receiving every dollar sought when representing plaintiffs and a complete defense verdict when representing defendants.  Most recently, Valerie tried a three-month negligence and trespass case in California state court in which the jury awarded her oil producer client $120 million in damages and prejudgment interest, and rejected all of defendant’s counterclaims.  In 2019, Valerie was trial counsel for Qualcomm in a patent infringement case against Apple that resulted in a complete victory for Qualcomm, with a jury finding all of Qualcomm’s asserted patents valid and infringed and awarding Qualcomm the full amount of damages sought.  On the defense side, Valerie has obtained complete defense verdicts, including in a patent infringement case she tried for Google in the Eastern District of Texas in 2020.
