Quinn welcomes Intellectual Property partner Kevin Hardy to the DC Office. Kevin has two decades of experience litigating high-profile patent disputes in district courts, the International Trade Commission, and in international arbitrations, with an emphasis on cases that involve the intersection of IP and antitrust issues. He has served as lead trial counsel in some of the most significant disputes regarding patents that have been declared essential to wireless communication standards, and he also has represented pharmaceutical clients in so-called “pay for delay” cases involving the settlement of Hatch-Waxman litigation. Kevin earned his JD from Columbia Law School in 1999, where he was a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar and Special Issue Chair of the Law Review. He clerked for Judge Stapleton on the Third Circuit, after which he joined Williams & Connolly, where he eventually was named Co-Chair of the firm’s Patent Litigation practice.
