Colin (Cole) Dunn

Associate

Colin (Cole) Dunn is an associate in the intellectual property litigation group. His practice focuses on patent infringement litigation across a wide range of industries and technologies ranging from pharmaceuticals and medical devices to computer networking and cybersecurity systems. Cole has experience with pre-suit investigations, invalidity, infringement, and claim construction analyses, motion practice, and discovery. He has worked on cases in multiple district court venues and post-grant proceedings before the PTAB.

In addition to his patent litigation practice, Cole has experience supporting transactions by assessing litigation risks, conducting freedom-to-operate studies, and analyzing patent portfolio strength. 

Prior to going to law school and joining the firm, Cole spent over three years as a technical adviser and patent agent. During that time, he assisted in advising clients on patent infringement risk mitigation through freedom-to-operate analyses involving design guidance and non-infringement/invalidity opinions. In addition to supporting patent counseling, Cole helped clients to protect inventions through strategic patent drafting and prosecution—including several appeals to the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.

Experience

  • Representing Palo Alto Networks in a 13-patent infringement suit relating to network security in the Eastern District of Virginia and at the PTAB.
