Partner - Chair of Litigation Practice
Irell & Manella LLP
Morgan Chu of Irell & Manella has secured a string of the world’s largest — and in some cases precedent-setting — verdicts, judgments and settlements, resulting in actual payments totaling more than $5 billion. He has been described by clients as, “beyond doubt the most gifted trial lawyer in the USA — who “delivers staggering results.”
Continuing his winning streak, in July 2018, Chu convinced the Federal Circuit to side with Irell client NantKwest in a 7-4 en banc decision, rejecting the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s position that applicants who appeal to a district court must pay for the agency’s legal bills, regardless of who wins or loses. In another significant matter, in February 2018, Chu secured a favorable confidential settlement in a multi-patent action pending before the International Trade Commission and the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.
