People

Steven Rizzi is a partner on the Intellectual Property, Patent, Trademark and Copyright Litigation team in the firm’s New York office. He focuses his practice on patent litigation and litigation-related counseling, and he has first-chaired five jury and bench patent trials in numerous district courts and the ITC since 2015. Steven’s commitment to client service and ability to navigate through complex legal, factual and technical matters have allowed him to develop efficient and effective strategies for obtaining successful results for his clients, including favorable settlements, pre-trial rulings, and judgments. In addition, he has counseled clients on both litigation-avoidance practices and in connection with patent and other intellectual property issues arising in the context of complex, technology-driven corporate transactions and licensing agreements.

Steven’s recent experience includes cases involving semiconductors, semiconductor packaging,  transdermal patches (Minivelle®), the only FDA-approved non-hormonal treatment for hot flashes (Brisdelle®), Faslodex® (fulvestrant injection for hormone receptor-positive metastatic breast cancer), white LEDs, confectionary products, wireless telephony, interactive television, television/Internet convergence, on-line games, pay television, magnetic and optical disk storage technology and packaging designs, electronic program guides, sports equipment, fiber optic communications devices and financial products.
