Jones Day adds IP attorney Platt

San Diego attorney Christian Platt has joined Jones Day as a partner in its intellectual property practice, the firm announced Monday.

Platt, who previously was a partner at Paul Hastings, represents clients nationwide in a wide variety of technologies, including telecommunications, video games, computer hardware, computer software, networking technologies, biotechnology and medical devices.

"Christian is an experienced patent trial lawyer who has significant experience with damages issues ... an area of great importance in today's environment," said Karen Hewitt, partner-in-charge of Jones Day’s San Diego office. "He is well-respected throughout Southern California and is a great addition to our growing IP practice."

Platt has worked on behalf of some of the world’s largest technology companies in their most complex patent disputes, including Apple, Konami Digital Entertainment, Quanta Computer, and Kyocera.

Mr. Platt earned his J.D. from the University of Texas School of Law and two undergraduate degrees, in biochemistry and molecular biology, from the University of Texas at Austin.
