Jay is a first-chair trial lawyer who advises clients in antitrust conduct investigations, mergers and acquisitions, and high-stakes litigation. He is deeply involved in issues at the intersection of antitrust and IP, and speaks and publishes regularly on topics such as standard-essential patents (SEPs), FRAND, patent assertion entities (PAEs) and patent trolls. Recently, Jay helped resolve the Korea Fair Trade Commission’s challenge to Microsoft Corporation’s acquisition of the Nokia devices and services business, with no changes to Microsoft’s pre-acquisition patent licensing practices. He also obtained a multimillion-dollar jury verdict on behalf of iBiquity Digital Corporation in its SEP licensing dispute with Continental Automotive Systems.
