WASHINGTON Feb. 22, 2011 James V. Mahon
Prior to joining Andrews Kurth, Mahon served as Deputy General Counsel and Head of the Global Litigation Group at Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications Inc., where he led the company’s global litigation team.
Mahon has represented numerous large companies in patent disputes as well as in mediation, patent prosecution, patent portfolio development, copyright, trade secret, unfair competition and general corporate matters. Representative clients include clients in the computer software and hardware, cell phone, bar code scanning, data networking, storage, biotech, investment, and medical device industries. As the former head of dispute resolution for Sony Ericsson, Mahon has substantial knowledge of the fundamental business issues faced by in-house counsel teams and is experienced with working directly with senior management and engineering staff as well as outside experts and is frequently relied on to distill complex technical issues for non-technical audiences.
"As general counsel, I was able to work with numerous law firms from across the globe," says Mahon. "The IP team at Andrews Kurth, and indeed the entire firm, has an outstanding reputation, and I look forward to helping continue to build on that tradition."
