Porter Hedges expanded its intellectual property capabilities this week with the addition of patent litigation partner Miranda Jones.
Jones previously practiced at the Houston litigation boutique Heim, Payne & Chorush. She has handled cases involving a WiFi patent, biotech patents, genetically modified crop plants and mechanical patents covering oil-rig machinery.
“I am so appreciative of all the past and current clients who have given me the opportunities to work on significant inventions and to advocate for important changes in patent law,” Jones said in a statement.
A former clerk for Judge Pauline Newman of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, Jones was on the legal team that secured a change in the law pertaining to induced infringement at the U.S. Supreme Court in Commil v. Cisco.
