Litigator Gabrielle Bina focuses her practice on intellectual property disputes, with a particular emphasis on patent litigation and appeals. She represents patent holders and accused infringers in disputes covering a wide range of technology, including medical devices, microprocessors, consumer products and biotechnology. While she has litigated cases in numerous major patent litigation dockets, she has particular depth in trying cases in the “rocket docket” Western District of Wisconsin, where she was previously an intern.
Experienced in all stages of litigation, from conducting discovery to trial and appeal, Gabrielle has an extensive background in drafting motions to dismiss, infringement and invalidity contentions, claim construction and summary judgment briefs, pre-trial and post-trial briefs, and appellate pleadings.
In addition to her patent litigation practice, Gabrielle has litigated complex commercial matters involving claims of trade dress infringement, trade secret misappropriation, breach of contract, and unfair competition. Gabrielle also has experience working with universities and technology transfer offices in patent infringement and licensing disputes. Additionally, she counsels her clients on responding to subpoenas, e-discovery issues and litigation readiness initiatives.
Gabrielle devotes substantial time to pro bono matters, including representation of an inmate on Georgia’s death row in federal habeas corpus proceedings for more than fifteen years. Gabrielle also had an opportunity to brief and argue education law issues in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit as an amicus appointed by that court.
