Partner Richard Brophy Recognized Among Top Litigators in the U.S., Canada

August 21, 2019 Firm News

For the second year in a row, Intellectual Property Litigation Partner Richard L. Brophy has been selected for the Benchmark Litigation “40 & Under Hot List.”

Benchmark Litigation, “the definitive guide to America’s leading litigation firms and attorneys,” conducts extensive research each year and highlights professionals under 40 who are ambitious and accomplished, and frequently handle major cases. Brophy and others are recognized in the 2019 edition among the “top talent in their respective litigation communities in the U.S. and Canada.”

Brophy has a proven track record of trying and winning complex intellectual property cases across the United States. He has earned a particular reputation for winning cases by dismantling opposing expert witnesses in deposition and on the stand. His practice encompasses many areas of complex civil litigation, but he focuses primarily on disputes involving patents, trademarks, copyrights and antitrust violations.

Drawing on his expansive background as an aerospace engineer and computer scientist, Brophy stands out by distilling complex technical and legal issues in ways that judges and juries can easily understand. Clients routinely praise Brophy for his ability to quickly become knowledgeable in the technologies at issue in his cases, and retain him to manage their most complex technical litigation.

In addition to providing strategic defense to clients who become litigation targets, Brophy has demonstrated a talent for accomplishing the challenging task of enforcing his clients’ intellectual property. His two most recent trials resulted in multimillion-dollar jury verdicts against his clients’ competitors. One case involved explosives detection equipment used by the Transportation Security Administration, and the other involved software used by health care companies to evaluate physician performance.

Brophy has experience as a practicing engineer in both aerospace engineering and embedded software engineering, and he is also an FAA licensed pilot.
