About Kristopher

Learn Kristopher’s areas of practice.

I serve as Managing Partner of Kilpatrick Townsend in China. My practice focuses on intellectual property litigation and counseling. I work with clients in such diverse fields as electronics, semiconductor manufacturing and development, software, telecommunications, transportation, entertainment, retail and consumer goods, and financial transactions. I have extensive experience in all aspects of federal district court litigation and International Trade Commission (ITC) investigations and trials.

As a registered patent attorney, I also specialize in post-grant proceedings before the United States Patent Office, having served as lead counsel in over 30 inter partes review (IPR) proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB).

I was one of only eight foreign lawyers in China named as a top litigator in 2018 by IAM Patent 1000 – The World's Leading Patent Practitioners. I was recognized by The Best Lawyers in America® for Patent Litigation in 2017 and 2018 and for both Patent Litigation and Intellectual Property Litigation in 2019 and 2020. I was named a 2018 "Top Litigator" by Law Week Colorado. I was recognized as a Colorado “Super Lawyer” for Intellectual Property Litigation in 2019, having been previously named a Colorado “Rising Star” six times by Super Lawyers magazine.

I also represent foreign parents, often on a pro bono basis, in international child abduction cases under the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction. I have served as lead counsel in multiple trials resulting in the successful return of illegally retained children to their home countries.

Before joining the firm, I completed a federal clerkship with the Honorable Robert C. Jones of the United States District Court for the District of Nevada.

Prior to joining the legal profession, I worked as a software engineer for one of the nation’s largest technology companies, developing cutting-edge design automation tools for VLSI microprocessor design. I also worked as a researcher for the National Institute of Science and Technology in Boulder, Colorado, conducting research into next-generation wireless standards and measurement techniques.
