Corey T. Leggett

Corey Leggett leverages his first-hand experience in patent litigation and prosecution to see the bigger picture for his clients' most pressing issues. He seizes opportunities to propose unique strategies that will position them to get the most out of their intellectual property.

Corey approaches each matter with the business objectives of his clients in mind. He understands how patent disputes continue to evolve in district courts, as well as in alternative forums such as the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and International Trade Commission (ITC). Corey has specific experience in all three venues. He understands the intricacies of each and the interplay between them.

In particular, he has helped secure very favorable outcomes for his clients by utilizing the post-grant procedures at the USPTO (e.g., IPR and PGR). Strategic use of such procedures can flip the momentum and control of a case. Corey has assisted with all aspects of pretrial patent litigation, including formulating non-infringement and invalidity positions, as well as drafting pleadings, early motions, contentions, written fact discovery, claim construction briefs, technology tutorials, and expert reports.

Corey offers knowledge gained from a diverse patent practice. In addition to litigating, he assists U.S. and foreign clients in securing patent rights for inventions in the commodities, industrials, technology, automotive, and healthcare industries. Corey also has experience writing and prosecuting numerous patent applications directed to imaging technologies, including task allocation methods implemented in computer networks, digital image manipulation, image processing, thermal printing, and digital display devices. His prosecution experience further encompasses opinion work and portfolio management counseling.
