Erynn Embree concentrates her practice on intellectual property and complex litigation, with particular focus on patent, copyright, trademark, and trade secret disputes. She is experienced in all phases of litigation, including pre-filing investigations, fact and expert discovery, witness preparation, discovery and dispositive motions practice, claim construction proceedings, and trial and post-trial proceedings. She has experience representing clients in federal and state courts across the country, the US Patent and Trademark Office, as well as the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.
Erynn advises clients in a wide range of industries, ranging from solar companies to software companies to medical device companies. She makes a point of obtaining a deep understanding of the facts and details of every case in order to create an advantage for her clients. Because she has served as both plaintiff’s and defendant’s counsel, Erynn offers a holistic point of view when identifying the strengths and weaknesses of a case and makes sure her client’s business objectives drive the litigation strategy. Clients also appreciate her ability to boil complex legal matters down to their essential parts and convey that information in an organized, easily understood way.
In addition to her intellectual property litigation practice, Erynn has experience in other complex litigation cases, including false advertising, unfair competition, and breach of contract disputes.
While Erynn enjoys working with all types of inventors and technologies, it’s her background in cell biology and the biological sciences that have provided her with formidable research skills and logical reasoning capabilities. During her undergraduate studies, Erynn researched the methods of long-distance tissue patterning and cell signaling using Dpp protein mutants.
Erynn received her J.D. from the UCLA School of Law and her B.S. from the University of California, Irvine. While earning her law degree, Erynn served as a judicial extern for the Hon.
