Professional Profile

Recognized as a “Next Generation Lawyer” (Legal 500), Joshua Simmons focuses his practice on intellectual property litigation and counseling, as well as regulatory and legislative policy. In addition to copyright, patent, publicity right, trademark, and trade secret matters, he advises clients on intellectual property matters that intersect with antitrust, computer and Internet fraud, false advertising, privacy, and social media issues, along with contract, licensing, and domain name disputes.

Josh routinely represents clients in appellate and trial courts around the country—particularly in complex cases and those of first impression. These high-profile matters involve such wide ranging industries as computer software and services, consumer and leisure products, financial services, health care and pharmaceuticals, media and entertainment—such as electronic games, film, news, publishing, sports, television and theatre—and telecommunications. They have been featured in the mainstream media, legal periodicals, and trade press.

In addition to maintaining a full-time litigation practice, Josh is a frequent speaker—including guest lectures at Harvard Law School, Columbia Law School, and Northwestern University—and has authored numerous articles on emerging trends in intellectual property. He is an active member of the ABA Intellectual Property Law Section, chairing its Copyright Law Reform Task Force, serving on its governing Council, and being the immediate past chair of its Copyright Division. He also is Vice Chair of IPO’s Software Related Inventions Committee, and an adviser to the Uniform Law Commission’s Right of Publicity Study Committee and the Copyright Society of the USA.

The Legal 500 has recognized Josh for his copyright, trademark litigation, trade secrets, and media and entertainment practices. Super Lawyers repeatedly has named Josh a “Rising Star” for his intellectual property litigation practice. He also was part of the Kirkland team that was honored by Managing Intellectual Property magazine for its work on “Milestone Case of the Year” Oracle America v. Google.

Josh’s pro bono matters include the representation of asylum seekers before the Department of Homeland Security—for which he twice has received Immigration Equality’s Safe Haven Award—as well as matters for the American Theatre Wing, Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, and other IP-related clients. He also is on the board of directors of the York Theatre Company, which is dedicated to developing and producing new musicals.
