Sarah Guske Named Intellectual Property Trailblazer by National Law Journal

SAN FRANCISCO, March 22, 2018 – Baker Botts L.L.P., a leading international law firm, is pleased to announce Intellectual Property partner Sarah Guske has been named to National Law Journal’s list of Intellectual Property Trailblazers. Top lawyers recognized on the annual list have “achieved remarkable successes” and continue to “make their mark” in the areas of patent, copyright, trademark and trade secret law. This is the third consecutive year Baker Botts is named on the National Law Journal’s IP Trailblazers list.

Ms. Guske is a partner in the firm's Intellectual Property group with thirteen years of experience litigating software and electronics patent litigation cases. She has litigated matters in district court and before the PTAB involving a wide variety of technologies, including telecommunication protocols and systems, MPEG Multimedia data for broadcast, telephonic voice recognition software and graphic chipset design.

In the March 2018 edition, Ms. Guske stated, “It’s more important than ever to count on teams to synthesize multivenue strategies early on…and to do that, you need teams with good experience, starting with junior associates. I hope to pay it forward, so I’ve been co-teaching PTAB trial class at UC Hastings. It’s one of the first of its kind.”

With over 180 IP lawyers and patent professionals, holding over 220 technical degrees, Baker Botts has an incredibly deep bench of practitioners with a wealth of experience in patent litigation, patent prosecution and post-grant proceedings. Baker Botts’ IP practice also authors the PTAB Trials Blog, which provides a unique perspective on news, trends and analysis of PTAB proceedings as they evolve, including IPRs, CBMRs, and post-grant reviews (PGRs), and the wide-ranging impact the proceedings have on the patent litigation landscape.

A profile on Ms. Guske is featured in the March 2018 annual edition of National Law Journal’s IP Trailblazers list. Baker Botts partner Wayne Stacy and David Wille were named to the 2017 and 2016 lists, respectively.
