Biography

Craig Uhrich’s principal areas of practice are intellectual property and complex commercial litigation. He has particular experience with patent infringement cases involving telecommunications devices, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and liquid crystal displays; and has represented both defendants and plaintiffs in high exposure infringement matters.

Craig also has patent litigation experience involving non-lethal ammunition, computer chips, and protective films. He has been involved in the litigation of over 100 patent cases, and he has experience in all phases of litigation from initial filing through trial and appeal.

In addition to intellectual property disputes, Craig has worked on significant complex commercial litigation for both international and domestic corporations, litigating cases in state and federal courts at both the trial and appellate levels.

Prior to graduating from law school, Craig worked for seven years as a nuclear engineer for one of the nation’s largest electric utilities.

In that capacity, he designed and implemented enhancements to the plant that resulted in significant increases in the plant’s generating capacity.
