Daniel E. Yonan

Director

 

Daniel E. Yonan is an experienced intellectual property trial attorney focusing on complicated patent disputes before federal district courts, fast-track investigations before the U.S. International Trade Commission, and proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.

Mr. Yonan currently leads the firm's ITC practice and has served as ITC trial counsel in more than 30 patent-based Section 337 investigations. Mr. Yonan has also appeared as counsel of record in multiple complex patent infringement trials, and serves as lead counsel in a number of cases representing some of the world’s largest automotive manufacturers. As a result, Mr. Yonan's experience includes a wide range of responsibilities, such as direct and cross-examination of fact and expert witnesses, dispositive motion argument, and formation of overall trial strategy, as well as management of director and associate teams. Additionally, he has handled appeals before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Mr. Yonan is sought out for his unique approach to complex patent litigation and his ability to consistently obtain favorable results for his clients.

Mr. Yonan is also intimately familiar with the Hatch-Waxman Act, and understands patent litigation strategy in the context of the Abbreviated New Drug Application process, its interplay with the FDA, anti-trust issues, and the timing constraints unique to ANDA litigation. Mr. Yonan's pharmaceutical training and industry experience play an important role in his ability to devise creative strategies for getting products to market and providing solutions that are based on solid business reasoning. 

Before attending law school, Mr. Yonan was a new-drug research chemist at Pfizer, Inc. (formerly G.D. Searle & Co.), where he focused on the development of novel anti-inflammatory drug candidates.

Mr. Yonan is a contributing author of Patent Office Litigation, Second Edition, published in 2017, and the two-volume set Patent Office Litigation, published in 2012 by Thomson Reuters Westlaw. The first edition focuses on the new contested proceedings under the America Invents Act, while the second edition provides a fresh and comprehensive exploration of these proceedings. Both books examine how the proceedings interact with other aspects of patent procurement and enforcement, and deliver practical analysis and advice.
