Fenwick & West LLP announced in recent days that high stakes IP litigation attorney Andrew P. Bridges has joined the firm as a partner in its IP & Technology Litigation group.

Bridges concentrates his practice on complex litigation in Internet, copyright, trademark, advertising, unfair competition, consumer protection and commercial law disputes. He is recognized on a regular basis as one of the Top 100 IP litigators in California. He joins the firm from the San Francisco office of Winston & Strawn. According to Corporate Counsel, he is one of the Top 10 “Go-To” IP litigation firms in the U.S.


Laurence Pulgram, Co-Chair of the firm’s IP & Technology Litigation Group was quoted as saying in a press release at the firm’s website: “Fenwick continues to seek out the best attorneys to deepen practice areas that are mission critical to our technology and life sciences clients. Andrew is an ideal fit—a globally known IP litigator who builds on the momentum and market share we have developed with an already outstanding group. We are thrilled to welcome him to the fold.”

Bridges was quoted as saying: “I was drawn to Fenwick & West for IP & Technology Litigation because of its depth and extraordinary track record of success in representing innovators and industry leaders in high-stakes IP litigation. Winston & Strawn is a great firm and I will miss working with my colleagues there, but I am really looking forward to joining my practice with such an accomplished team and look forward to growing the Group.”

Bridges litigates cases for Internet, technology, and consumer-focused companies with regard to new business models, media, technologies and communications platforms. He has handled numerous high-profile matters, including the defense of Diamond Multimedia against the recording industry’s attack on the first popular portable MP3 music player; defense of Google and others against Perfect 10’s copyright, trademark and publicity law challenges to the Internet; CNET Networks against the effort of Snap-On Tools to thwart the launch of the Snap! Online portal; and ClearPlay, maker of DVD playback control software that enables consumers to have a “PG” experience of “R” rated movies, in a suit brought by Hollywood directors and studios seeking to ban the software.

He is highly respected nationally and globally, and we couldn’t be more pleased he selected Fenwick & West to expand his practice.”

Chambers USA ranks Bridges in Band 1 for Trademark, Copyright, and Trade Secrets, and he is also ranked in Band 1 for Trademark Litigation by World Trademark Review, listed in Best Lawyers in America, and honored in numerous other publications that relate to e-commerce and intellectual property law. The World Intellectual Property Organization’s Mediation and Arbitration Center has selected him as a domain name arbitrator, and he serves the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California as an early neutral evaluator.

Over the past two decades, Fenwick & West attorneys have handled some of the most prominent IP, technology and patent litigation matters, including securing one of the 25 largest IP litigation payouts in U.S. history—a $400M settlement for its client Compuware against IBM.

The firm was recently named one of only 20 “Go To Law Firms on the Cutting Edge” for patent litigation, and was recently awarded “Most Innovative Use of Technology by a Law Firm” by American Lawyer Media for the firm’s proprietary electronic discovery tools.
