Mark P. Wine, a partner in Orrick’s Orange County office, is a member of
the Intellectual Property Group. Mark is a trial lawyer with extensive
experience in all aspects of intellectual property litigation on behalf
of clients in a broad spectrum of technology, business and industry. Mark is also an experienced mediator of intellectual property disputes. He has been
in private practice for 40 years and has represented clients in
contested intellectual property matters in more than 20 states.
Mark has significant jury trial experience. He has litigated more than 25 jury trial matters to a verdict in federal and state courts across a wide range of substantive matters including general commercial and trade secret disputes in addition to patent and trademark matters.
Mark’s intellectual property litigation experience includes all phases of discovery, prior art research, pretrial, jury and bench trial work, post-trial motions and appeals before the Fourth, Seventh, Eighth, Ninth and Federal Circuits, and he has represented clients before the International Trade Commission (ITC) in Section 337 proceedings.
Recently Mark, as lead counsel, obtained a very favorable settlement for a European company that manufactures cutting edge proton beam therapy systems for use in treating tumors in the course of patent infringement litigation that had been pending for more than five years. Mark’s team succeeded in invalidating two of the five patents asserted against their client on summary judgment and successfully defended that outcome in the Federal Circuit. The case settled just before trial on remaining issues. The settlement amount represented approximately one-half of one percent of the amount originally demanded in the plaintiff's complaint.
In addition, Mark has defended one of the world's leading consumer electronics manufacturers in patent infringement litigation involving plasma screen displays. The case involved claims and counterclaims covering 16 patents and was settled favorably following an intensive discovery and claims construction battle.
Over the past four years, Mark has appeared in numerous cases in the Eastern District of Texas for a number of Fortune 500 companies. All of those matters have been successfully resolved short of trial.
Mark is a frequent speaker and author on intellectual property topics. While in law school, Mark served as Notes and Comments editor on the Iowa Law Review.
