Eric M. Hutchins



I am a registered patent attorney in Oracle Legal with expertise in patent litigation and licensing (I am not certified as a legal specialist by The State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization).My practice includes patent litigation and licensing, copyright litigation, and litigation-related due diligence in mergers and acquisitions. I also help manage risk and resolve disputes involving trade secrets, copyrights, and commercial matters. I also am interested in technology transactions, open source software licensing, and general intellectual property counseling. Before joining Oracle, I was associated with Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP and its predecessor firm, Townsend and Townsend and Crew LLP, where I handled IP litigation and technology licensing for a variety of companies, from Fortune 100 to VC-funded startups, in the software, semiconductor, and consumer electronics industries.
