Erica Wilson, an experienced litigator with a track record of success representing clients in complex patent and other technology-related matters, has joined the expanding IP litigation practice at Davis Wright Tremaine LLC. Wilson joins the firm as a partner in the San Francisco office.

Wilson comes to DWT from Goodwin Procter LLP and has represented clients in patent lawsuits in the computer software/hardware and biotechnology industries, including mobile payment systems, remote access technology, virtual private networks, data compression, GPS technology, biometrics, semiconductor manufacture, and recombinant DNA technology. Prior to joining Goodwin Procter, Wilson was a partner at Morrison & Foerster.

“I look forward to putting Davis Wright’s considerable strengths to work for my clients,” said Wilson. “The firm has outstanding lawyers who are committed to providing the highest quality representation, and its attentiveness to client needs and objectives is a perfect fit for me and my clients.”

Wilson joins an expanding IP litigation team at Davis Wright Tremaine that includes her former colleague Eric Walters, who came to the firm from Morrison & Foerster in April.

“Erica is an exceptional patent litigator—smart, savvy and creative,” said Walters, also a partner in DWT’s San Francisco office. “She is a terrific trial lawyer and brilliant strategist who knows how to get results. I am very excited that we will be working together again.”

“We are thrilled to welcome Erica to the firm,” said San Francisco partner-in-charge, Jeff Gray. “We handle patent infringement suits around the country. The addition of a lawyer with Erica’s track record of success will provide our clients an outstanding resource in this growing area of litigation.”

Wilson has a B.S. in Computer Engineering from the University of California – San Diego, and received her J.D. at University of California Hastings College of Law. She served for six years in the U.S. Navy, attaining the rank of lieutenant.
