Passionate Advocate That Understands Your Business
We engaged John and his firm on a large IP litigation for the company that had dragged out for several years before John came on board. John and his team got up to speed on the case incredibly quickly and efficiently, and was able to immediately dive in and provide our company with key insights and legal counsel. One of John's biggest strengths is learning a company's business inside and out, and being mindful of budgets to provide us the most effective counsel for any given matter. He never overstaffs cases or goes down unnecessary legal rabbit holes. It was a pleasure working together with him.

No Wasted Effort
Upon joining our litigation team, John quickly and accurately understood the technology of our infringed patent and was able to communicate both the technical and legal aspects of the litigation throughout the process. I expected a lawyer but was pleased to work with an experienced technologist as well.

General Counsel, Cartera Commerce, Inc.
John Simmons the Panitch team have done exemplary work defending our SaaS/managed services e-commerce company against several patent trolls over the years, as well as performing transactional work such as evaluating potential patent portfolio acquisitions and proposed patents. He does an excellent job of taking a pragmatic approach, understanding both business and legal considerations, and all the while ensuring that billings reflect the right cost/benefit balance, particularly for a cost-sensitive early-stage company like ours. John communicates well, and is smart, experienced, personable, and easy to work with. He also is very aggressive and savvy in litigation, and his strategy and advice has always been spot-on and has led to successful outcomes in every matter for which we've engaged him. Highly recommended, without reservation.

great patent attorneys
John Simmons and his team at Panitch have done a fantastic job over a long time period (10+ years) helping us to create, grow, manage, and defend our patent & trademark portfolio. They take the time to understand our technology, our industry, and our strategic goals. John has a strong "business sense" which helps keep the cost/value equation in check. They are terrific people, easy to work with, and yet bulldogs when we need that to defend our IP rights. Highly recommended.

I worked with John on a number of different cases when I was CEO of Zenith's Products. I have worked with many different attorneys during my 25-year career, and John is by far the most talented litigator I've come across. I would definitely want him on my team on any future patent case.
