Orrick Intellectual Property Partner Denise Mingrone has been selected as one of The Recorder’s Top 50 Women In Tech Law. The list honors 50 outstanding women lawyers who've demonstrated leadership and expertise in solving the most pressing legal concerns companies face. This year, The Recorder focused on the tech sector.
An intellectual property trial lawyer, Ms. Mingrone serves as leader of Orrick’s Silicon Valley office. In selecting Ms. Mingrone, The Recorder highlighted her successes on behalf of tech clients such as Brocade Communications in its trial win over A10 Networks, which was also named one of the Top Verdicts of 2012 by the Daily Journal. She was also recognized for leading the litigation team that secured injunctive relief against defendant Deepak Sabharwal to halt a trade secret misappropriation for client Synopsys and for defeating Tessera in a patent litigation suit before the ITC on behalf of Acer, Nanya Technology and Powerchip Semiconductor.
Ms. Mingrone founded and chairs Successful Women in Intellectual Property (“SWiIP”), a program sponsored by Orrick that brings together 100+ Bay Area women from legal departments, law firms, government and academics several times a year to discuss professional issues.
“Denise is a leader in countless ways,” said Orrick Chairman Mitch Zuklie. “On a typical day she counsels clients on bet-the-company litigation strategy, orchestrates complex trial teams, masters new technologies, mentors associates, leads a 100-lawyer office and finds time to spearhead programs like SWiIP. We are so proud to see her recognized for her tremendous impact on the tech sector.”
