firstname.lastname@example.org(310) 975-7074Kayvan NorooziKayvan has successfully litigated complex patent infringement matters against a number of the world’s largest companies.
In September 2016, Kayvan obtained a verdict of willful patent infringement and running royalties against LG Electronics with respect to two declared standard-essential telecommunications patents invented by engineers at Nokia. The district court subsequently enhanced the verdict, citing deposition testimony obtained by Kayvan in which LG’s corporate representative admitted that “after thorough review of the patents-in-suit he concluded that the patents are novel and non-obvious.” 2:14-cv-912, Dkt. 47 at 2.
Kayvan has also successfully litigated against a number of other companies, including Google, AT&T, Verizon, Microsoft, Apple, Hewlett-Packard, and Amazon.com, each of which entered into significant licensing agreements only days or weeks before trial.
Kayvan’s clients include institutional patent holders and litigation finance funds. His current matters are pending before the Federal Circuit, the Eastern District of Texas, the Northern District of California, and the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.
In addition to his legal practice, Kayvan is President & CEO of Koios Pharmaceuticals, a startup increasing access to affordable medicines by introducing generic competition. He is also a regular invitee to the Hoover Institution’s Working Group on Intellectual Property, Innovation, and Prosperity at Stanford University.
