Laurence Pulgram's Summary

As trial, litigation, and arbitration counsel, Laurence's practice seeks to enhance business outcomes by deep understanding of client needs, coupled with rigorous analysis and savvy strategies. He brings close to 30 years of courtroom experience, spanning a wide range of business and intellectual property disputes, beginning from pre-dispute advice to taking on matters that need new thinking for appeals. Current clients range from four of the six largest technology firms in the Silicon Valley, to many of the hottest start-ups in information technology, the internet and new media.

Since joining Fenwick & West in 2000 to build the San Francisco litigation practice, Laurence has focused on the firm's sweet spot--representing technology companies--while also including more traditional manufacturing and media companies as well. He has an active docket of class action defense cases in areas such as false advertising, unfair competition, warranty and privacy and data security issues. He regularly litigates disputes involving contract (especially licensing), alleged fraud, and business torts. Core areas also include copyright litigation, where Laurence is co-head of Fenwick's copyright litigation group, and advises and litigates for both leading national and international rights holders as well as providers of technologies that enable new business models. Laurence also has litigated published cases in the areas of trademark, trade dress, trade secret, rights of publicity and invasions of privacy.

Recognitions include consistent rankings in Best Lawyers in America in both IP and commercial litigation, and Superlawyers of Northern California.
