Intellectual property


Leveraging his academic background in chemical engineering, Aaron Fahrenkrog handles complex intellectual property cases in a wide range of areas, including patents, strategic IP monetization, class actions, technology licensing, and publicity rights. 


Aaron currently represents Corel in a patent infringement suit against Microsoft, alleging that most or all products in the Microsoft Office suite infringe patents originating in Corel’s market-leading Word Perfect software, with damages based on sales of Microsoft Word and other Office products. Aaron is also involved in a series of lawsuits against Netflix and Hulu, wherein he and his colleagues assert that the streaming platforms are benefitting from technology invented by their client. 


Aaron has also developed a robust practice representing clients who practice in the computing and semiconductors industry, successfully representing his client Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD) in a number of high profile patent infringement litigations involving hundreds of products, including USB, graphics processing units, thermal management, memory, and more. Aaron and his colleagues have recovered over $500 million for clients in the computing and semiconductor industry alone.
