Denver IP Attorney Joins King & Spalding in California

by Tony Flesor

The Northern California offices of King & Spalding added Denver-based IP trial lawyer Jim Brogan. Brogan is joining the firm’s trial and global disputes practice group. He is joining King & Spalding from Cooley.

Brogan has served as lead trial counsel for life sciences and technology companies in patent litigation, patent office proceedings including IPRs, licensing and International Trade Commission Section 337 matters. He has won jury victories in the Eastern District of Texas, including a win against a Fortune 100 company in which a jury found that the company had infringed his client’s patents relating to blade servers.

Brogan worked at Cooley for 17 years and chaired the firm’s intellectual property practice from 2012 to 2016. Tom Friel also joined King & Spalding from Cooley in February.

Brogan is an adjunct professor at the University of Denver’s Sturm College of Law, where he teaches patent litigation, and is a co-founder of the Rocky Mountain Intellectual Property Institute, an annual continuing legal education event presented in Denver by the Colorado Bar Association.

Brogan received his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering with a specialization in biomedicine from Southern Methodist University and his law degree from the University of Houston.
