Robin McGrathATLANTA, March 8, 2017—Robin L. McGrath has joined Duane Morris LLP as a partner in the firm’s Atlanta office. McGrath enhances the firm’s intellectual property capabilities in Atlanta and nationally. She joins Duane Morris from Paul Hastings LLP.

McGrath concentrates her practice on litigating all aspects of patent, trademark and copyright disputes, as well as IP counseling. She has extensive courtroom experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants in the technology and financial technology industries, focusing on payment systems, business methods, software, telephone, internet and networking systems. 

In her patent litigation work, McGrath has successfully defended clients such as a large-scale retailer and payment card company; an international industrial manufacturer; a telephone long distance carrier; a well-known financial institution in an action relating to text banking; and a banking institution in an action relating to ATM and branch locators, which resulted in a dismissal with prejudice of all claims. Additionally, she has represented one of the largest carpet manufacturers in patent infringement litigation resulting in a jury verdict of patent invalidity after a three-week trial; a governing, regulating and promoting body for a major sports league, as plaintiff, in a successful trademark infringement action resulting in injunction and payment of damages; and multiple financial institutions and technology providers in a patent infringement action, successfully invalidating all four patents-in-suit in inter partes review (IPR) proceedings. McGrath’s representation of a medical manufacturer plaintiff in a trademark and breach-of-contract litigation lawsuit resulted in an injunction and a multimillion-dollar jury verdict.

McGrath has been regularly listed in The Best Lawyers in America and is recognized as its 2017 “Litigation - Intellectual Property Lawyer of the Year” for Atlanta. Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business has ranked her as one of the top intellectual property attorneys in Georgia.
