L. Scott Oliver

Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP

Menlo Park, CA, USA


When handling patent, copyright, trademark and trade secret matters, first-chair litigator Scott Oliver blends creative legal strategies with elegant explanations of technology. By distilling complex information to the key elements, he can craft a story that compels ITC judges and layperson juries alike. Scott has handled more than 150 matters and a dozen trials. Depending on each client’s unique business objectives, Scott’s strategy may include quickly reaching a favorable settlement or winning at trial.

Since teaching himself assembly language as a child, Scott has been fascinated with technology. Now as an extremely technically proficient litigator, Scott has more than two decades of experience defending companies such as Accenture, Brocade Communications, Aruba Networks and others in district courts and the ITC. 

In addition to his litigation work, he provides intellectual property counseling. Scott advises clients on how to strategically grow and manage their intellectual property portfolios, guides young companies through the stages on patent strategy, and consults for handset manufacturers and patent pools on the licensing of 802.11, 3G and LTE patents.

Scott is the former Chair of the ITC Committee of the American Intellectual Property Law Association, an outgoing member of Amicus and Ethics Committees and a frequent speaker on patent, damages, and ITC issues.
