Law360 recently named Quinn Emanuel partner Amy Candido one of the country’s top five intellectual property partners under 40. “Rising Stars” were selected from more than 1,000 nominations based on the strength of their accomplishments in their respective practice areas. Amy was recognized for her significant accomplishments in several high-stakes patent jury trials and investigations by the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC). In particular, Law360 cited her victories for Google in its first two patent jury trials, both in the Eastern District of Texas, in which Amy played major roles in securing jury verdicts of both non-infringement and invalidity. Law360 also cited her successful handling of IBM’s damages case in the Acqis v. IBM jury trial.
Law360 also recognized Amy for her representation of Google and HTC Corp. in several high-profile patent matters concerning smartphone technology. The smartphone wars continue, and this summer Amy will again represent HTC against Apple before the ITC.
