Kyle Calhoun is an intellectual property litigation partner focusing on high-tech patent and trade secret litigation in U.S. Federal Courts, at the International Trade Commission, and before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. Kyle has played an integral role on six winning trial teams, drafted and argued several successful motions at all stages of litigation, has taken or assisted in the taking and defending of dozens of trial examinations, and has taken and defended several fact and expert depositions. He has worked alongside technical experts to develop a deep understanding of complex technologies, including semi-conductor manufacturing equipment, two-way communication devices, agricultural equipment, machine vision technologies, solar panel systems, semiconductors, microprocessors, network routing appliances, and mobile devices. Kyle also has extensive experience in motion practice and fact discovery in matters not strictly limited to patents, including contract and licensing disputes, business torts, and claims based in unfair competition laws.

Kyle has further developed his skills as a litigation attorney by maintaining involvement in a variety of pro bono matters, with a focus on immigration claims, veteran’s benefit appeals, and post-conviction relief. In particular, Kyle has conducted direct examination of fact witnesses in Immigration Court in support of claims for asylum, drafted multiple briefs to the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, and argued before the Illinois Torture Inquiry and Relief Commission. This has provided Kyle with an avenue to hone his abilities as an attorney while helping people in need.
