MIKE BETTINGER is a partner in Sidley’s San Francisco and Palo Alto offices. Mike is a leading national trial lawyer for patent and intellectual property cases. He has tried 30 cases to verdict, securing notable jury trial wins in Federal courts throughout the U.S. for premier technology companies in the telecommunications, networking, software, semiconductor, health care, and solar industries.

Mike delivered a jury verdict of non-infringement and invalidity for Microsoft in a patent case involving Xbox video technology filed by competitor Biscotti in the Eastern District of Texas. He secured a defense jury verdict for Baxter Healthcare in a patent case involving intravenous drug pump technology filed by competitor Carefusion in the Southern District of California. That 2012 win was selected by the Daily Journal as a “California Top Ten Defense Verdict.” Mike chalked up a jury defense verdict for Microsoft in a patent and trade secret case involving videoconferencing technology filed by competitor Placeware in the Northern District of California. He has also scored jury defense verdicts of non-infringement for Varian subsidiary Z-Axis in a medical device patent case filed by competitor Nomos in the District of Massachusetts, and for Novatel in a modem technology case filed by competitor DNT in the Eastern District of Virginia.

Mike’s jury trial wins reach beyond patent cases. He notched a landmark jury defense verdict for Abercrombie & Fitch in a trademark case filed by Levi Strauss & Co in the Northern District of California, involving Levi’s “famous” trademark for its back-pocket stitching design. The Daily Journal selected this first-of-its-kind trial win as a “California Top Ten Defense Verdict” in 2009. Mike’s patent trial wins also extend to the International Trade Commission where, as lead counsel, he has secured Initial Decisions of non-infringement, each affirmed by the Commission for Amazon, Kodak, STMicroelectronics, Nanya and Canadian Solar, among other technology clients.
