Eric Huang is a partner in Quinn Emanuel's New York office. He represents both plaintiffs and defendants in intellectual property matters. He specializes in building patent infringement cases on either side of the “v” in highly technical subject matter. He has extensive experience litigating patent cases involving a wide range of technologies – smartphones, user interface software, touchscreen technology, circuits, semiconductor processing, spreading and modulation techniques used in wireless communication, various aspects of 3G and 4G cellular communications, error control coding including turbocodes and low density parity check codes, digital video compression, audio compression, pharmaceutical formulations, fiber optics, liquid crystal displays, mechanical measurement devices, electronic engine control, e-commerce, and computer systems.
His practice encompasses all aspects of case preparation, pre-trial discovery, expert preparation, trial preparation and trial in U.S. federal district courts and before the U.S. International Trade Commission. He served as a trial counsel for respondent Samsung in ITC investigation 337-TA-796 initiated by Apple against Samsung's smartphones, tablets and media players. The firm successfully defended against efforts to stop the importation of Samsung devices; to date, no Samsung device was excluded or seized as a result of any order from this investigation. Eric recently helped secure a very favorable jury verdict for Marvell Semiconductor in a case brought by France Telecom in San Francisco federal district court alleging infringement by Marvell’s 3G baseband chips. In addition to a favorable damages verdict of a fraction of the damages sought by plaintiff, the firm recently secured judgment for Marvell Semiconductor on post-trial motions in that case. Eric also has experience prosecuting patents and is admitted to the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office.
Eric’s representative clients include BlackBerry, California Institute of Technology, Canon, Marvell Semiconductor, MediaTek, Monolithic Power Systems, Motorola, Reliant Pharmaceuticals, Rovi, Samsung, and Sony.
