Partner; Chair, Litigation Group
Irell & Manella LLP

Morgan Chu has secured many of the world’s largest—and in some cases precedent-setting verdicts, judgments and settlements, resulting in actual payments totaling more than $9 billion. His decades-long career stands apart for its impact and influence. Defense representations have comprised an equal share of his career, and he has scored a series of wins that have been named top defense verdicts of the year.

In just the past year, Chu has obtained nearly $3.3 billion in awards for VLSI Technology in patent trials against Intel involving microprocessor technology. In November 2022, he convinced a jury to award VLSI $948 million plus running royalties, and in a separate case in April 2022, he secured a $2.3 billion judgment for VLSI – the largest patent judgment in US history. His strategy included ensuring that technical issues surrounding the infringement were easily understandable for jurors.
