Profile Experience

Inge Osman advises domestic and multinational clients on their highest-stakes intellectual property litigation, including before federal district and appellate courts, as well as the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB).

Combining sophisticated technical knowledge and significant trial experience, Ms. Osman helps clients achieve their desired outcomes in complex patent litigation. She has successfully represented clients in matters involving a range of technologies, including pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, antibodies, medical devices, semiconductors, liquid crystal display technologies, biometric scanning devices, information technology, and call processing systems.

Ms. Osman draws on her scientific training and prior experience clerking for the Federal Circuit to identify the most successful arguments in patent disputes. She received undergraduate degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering and Biomedical Engineering from Duke University. Ms. Osman previously clerked for Judge Kimberly A. Moore of the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

Ms. Osman’s broad-based trial work includes arguing in court and before the PTAB, deposing key fact and expert witnesses, and managing fact and expert discovery.
