Kyle Calhoun is an intellectual property litigation partner focusing on high-tech patent and trade secret litigation in U.S. Federal Courts and at the International Trade Commission. Kyle has played an integral role on four winning trial teams, drafted several successful dispositive and Daubert motions, prepared for and 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 two-way communication devices, 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 and veteran’s benefit appeals. In particular, Kyle has conducted direct examination of fact witnesses in Immigration Court in support of claims for asylum and drafted multiple briefs to the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. This has provided Kyle with an avenue to hone his abilities as an attorney while helping underrepresented communities who need it most.
