Roy Hardin has over thirty years of experience trying patent cases to juries and the bench across the country with a focus on Texas. His patent trial experience ranges from months-long bet-the-company cases for the largest corporations to single day trials for inventor owned companies. Drawing on his experience obtaining patents as a registered patent attorney early in his career, he uses trial advocacy to leverage intellectual property law principles for his clients. The recent spate of business method and software related patent disputes that can turn on the legal definitions of seemingly plain language require the same patent advocacy skill as more technical mechanical and chemical matters he has handled for years.
Trademark, copyright, trade secret, antitrust and unfair competition litigation all involve intangible property rights and he has broad trial experience in these matters also. He has tried patent cases to judgment/verdict in Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Missouri, South Carolina, Delaware, Washington, and Wyoming. In recent years he has tried several cases to juries in the Eastern District of Texas and presented Markman hearings in the Marshall, Tyler and Texarkana divisions. He has presented numerous oral arguments to the Federal Circuit in patent appeals beginning in 1983 and continuing to date.
