Jay Jurata Partner Antitrust & Concurrence, Antitrust/Propriété intellectuelle

Washington, D.C.

As a former Surface Warfare Officer in the United States Navy, John "Jay" Jurata is no stranger to keeping his cool in face of pivotal conflicts. This has served him well in his career as an antitrust trial attorney that has spanned more than two decades. He has represented some of the biggest names in the technology industry, including Microsoft, Sonos, Sharp, LG and Panasonic. 

A partner in Orrick's Washington, D.C., office, Jay is the leader of the firm's Antitrust & Competition Group. His practice covers both U.S. and international competition law, with an emphasis on antitrust and intellectual property issues involving technology markets. He is a first chair trial lawyer with extensive experience representing clients in government investigations relating to monopolization and abuse of dominance, mergers and acquisitions, and high-stakes litigation.

Jay currently leads Zillow’s defense team in an ongoing, high-profile antitrust lawsuit filed by REX. He also is representing Microsoft, Sonos and others in their role as interested parties in the Department of Justice's antitrust lawsuit against Google. Additionally, Jay represents Microsoft on various merger control matters, antitrust investigations and private litigation.

Other recent successes include representing Sharp Corporation in a standards-essential patent licensing arbitration against InterDigital Corporation that sought $390 million in damages, a dismissal of a suit regarding a standards-essential patent dispute against iBiquity and later that year a trial victory for the client on the same issue.

Jay is a recognized authority in the field of antitrust and its overlap with intellectual property, and he speaks and publishes regularly on topics such as standards-essential patents, FRAND, and patent trolls. As an Intellectual Property Fellow for the Innovators Network Foundation, Jay also performs independent scholarship involving standards-essential patents.
