The global law firm Jones Day has announced that S. Christian Platt has joined the Firm’s San Diego Office as a partner in its Intellectual Property Practice. Mr. Platt comes to Jones Day from the San Diego office of Paul Hastings, where he was a partner in that firm’s Intellectual Property Practice.

“Christian is an experienced patent trial lawyer who has significant experience with damages issues . . . an area of great importance in today’s environment,” said Karen Hewitt, Partner-in-Charge of Jones Day’s San Diego Office. “He is well-respected throughout Southern California and is a great addition to our growing IP practice.”

Mr. Platt represents clients nationwide in a wide variety of technologies, including telecommunications, video games, computer hardware, computer software, networking technologies, biotechnology and medical devices. He has worked on behalf of some of the world’s largest technology companies in their most complex patent disputes, including clients such as Apple, Konami Digital Entertainment, Quanta Computer, and Kyocera. He has handled intellectual property trials in federal courts in California, Texas, and Virginia.

“Christian has litigated dozens of patent infringement matters and has tried numerous bench and jury trials in complex IP disputes,” said Anthony M. Insogna, chair of the global Intellectual Property Practice at Jones Day, and founding partner of the Firm’s San Diego Office. “The overlap in client representation coupled with his trial experience and our growth plans in California make this a perfect fit.”
