Intellectual property litigator Scott W. Doyle joined global law firm Greenberg Traurig as a shareholder and chair of the firm’s International Trade Commission (ITC) Practice. He will be based out of the Washington, D.C. office as part of the Global Intellectual Property & Technology Practice Group.

Doyle will focus primarily on patent and intellectual property infringement actions in the federal courts and Section 337 actions at the ITC. He recently obtained dismissals in the early phases of three patent cases. He also has experience in arbitrations and mediations involving patent and intellectual property issues.

“At this critical time for so many companies in defending their key intellectual property assets in front of the ITC, we were fortunate to find a world class practitioner to lead our efforts and take us to a higher level in the area,” said Richard A. Rosenbaum, Greenberg Traurig’s executive chairman. “Scott brings a combination of legal talent, leadership skills and business savvy so rare in the field, and we are pleased to welcome him to lead and build the team.”

Doyle formerly served as chair of the Intellectual Property Litigation Practice at Fried Frank and co-managing partner of the Washington D.C. office and head of the IP Litigation Group at Shearman and Sterling. A trained electrical engineer and registered patent attorney, Doyle has litigated cases involving a wide range of technologies including telecommunications, internet, digital cameras, computer hardware and software, automotive, photolithography machines, chemical compositions, medical devices, semiconductors and biotechnology.

In addition, Doyle has worked on a range of technology-related transactions both as in-house and outside counsel including buyouts, M&A, investments, patent portfolio sales, joint ventures and many forms of technology agreements.
