Andrea Reed has eight years of experience representing technology companies in intellectual property and other complex commercial litigation. She also provides transactional counseling, including on license and settlement agreements, and advises on various due diligence and competition matters.

Ms. Reed focuses her practice on highly-publicized, competitor-versus-competitor disputes in federal courts throughout the United States. Her recent successes include winning summary judgment of patent inventorship, and, separately, working on a lean, three-lawyer team to obtain a verdict of patent infringement and damages after a six-day jury trial. Both cases were affirmed on appeal.

For transactional counseling, Ms. Reed’s experience includes negotiating and drafting license and settlement agreements and advising on their enforceability, breach, and termination. Ms. Reed’s experience also includes representing a nonprofit entity in contractual and indemnification matters concerning scientific field research and education.

Representative industries include petrochemical (polymer manufacturing), biotechnology (microbial inoculants), food technology (modified wheat protein isolates), and medical devices (radiopaque skin markers and blood gas analyzers).

Prior to joining K&L Gates, Ms. Reed served as a judicial intern to the Honorable Arthur J. Gajarsa of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
