Lowell uses his electrical engineering background to assist clients in achieving favorable outcomes in complex intellectual property and trade secret cases in federal and state courts. He is a registered patent attorney with experience litigating patent infringement claims primarily in the networking and telecommunications fields and related industries. As a former U.S. Court of Federal Claims clerk, Lowell also advises clients with issues involving IP aspects of government contracts. Lowell is the co-author of the “Preliminary Evidentiary Issues” chapter in the recently published Evidence in Patent Cases (AIPLA/Bloomberg 2018).

Lowell has extensive experience litigating patents concerning software, user interfaces, watermarking and encryption, disk drives, telecommunications, networking, content delivery, payment systems, transportation, semiconductor processing, and medical devices. He has experience throughout the life cycle of intellectual property cases, from pre-filing and early case intake analyses all the way through settlement, trial and appeal. He also frequently handles all aspects of both offensive and defensive discovery. He has participated on the trial teams for a bench trial before the International Trade Commission involving patent infringement claims, for which the trial team won “Case of the Year” in Intellectual Property from Legal Media Group in September 2018, and a state court jury trial involving trade secret misappropriation, and has drafted numerous petitions for inter partes review to the Patent Trial and Appeals Board.
