Practice groupIntellectual Property, Media, and Technology

From his background and service in the military, Cory Szczepanik knows the best results come from hardworking, sincere people working together in open communication. Cory applies this principle in his practice to achieve his client's goals.

Cory works on a wide range of intellectual property matters. His experience across various technology sectors provides a strategic knowledge base to address the most complex issues. He advises clients working with computer software, cell phones, semiconductors, pharmaceutical and medical devices, and wearable technologies to identify practical, timely solutions. Cory also works in numerous types of litigation. From defending client's interests in patent litigation and fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory (FRAND) disputes to supporting non-practicing entity litigation on disruptive technology, Cory meets his clients where it matters most.

Cory maintains an active pro bono caseload. He has represented clients before various federal courts and agencies including representing a Mexican national applying for citizenship under the Violence Against Women Act and an amicus brief before the Supreme Court regarding the interests of children in drawing voting districts.

Prior to joining Hogan Lovells, Cory served in the United States Navy, where he taught undergraduate-level physics and mathematics to more than 800 officer and enlisted students. He continues to serve in the Navy Reserve Judge Advocate General's Corps.
