Practicing for over thirty years, Rob Isackson is an accomplished, front-line IP litigator, counselor, and advisor fluent in all aspects of intellectual property: patents, trade secrets, trademarks, copyrights and designs. With a primary focus on IP litigation at the trial level, particularly patent and trade secret disputes and commercial disputes over technology issues, Rob’s IP practice includes appellate litigation as well as providing strategic counseling, advice and opinions on strength of IP rights, freedom to operate and litigation risks, patent and trademark prosecution, portfolio assessments, trade secret audits, negotiation and drafting of IP transactions and agreements, and M&A IP due diligence.

Rob is a first chair litigator, with nine patent trials – four as first chair (three jury and one bench), one as second chair (jury), and four as part of the trial team (jury); and two international arbitration trials – one as first chair and the other as second chair – concerning commercial disputes over technology transfer and cooperation agreements. He also has been the trial team lead counsel in over forty patent, nine trade secret, three trademark and two copyright cases filed in district courts in more than twenty states. Rob also has hundreds of U.S. patent applications that he has filed and prosecuted to issuance.

Rob’s approach to client service is to work with the business team to identify the problem in the business context. Then, using his diverse experience to bring a fresh perspective, he seeks to identify the key issues and develop creative solutions and cost-effective strategies that align with the business objective and allow the client to move its business forward.

Rob’s clients range from Fortune 100 companies to startups, and he has worked in a wide variety of industries and technologies, including computer hardware and software, consumer electronics, agricultural biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, medical diagnostic instrumentation and reagents, nutraceuticals, invasive, non-invasive, and minimally invasive medical devices, business methods, semiconductors, silicone and plastic materials, luggage, and consumer products.
