Rahul Sarkar is a trial attorney in Reichman Jorgensen’s New York office who focuses on patent litigation. Rahul gained significant technical experience working as a software and firmware engineer for several years before law school and is highly fluent in programming languages and chipset architectures. He leverages his background as a technical writer to provide a deeper understanding of complex technologies when advancing theories of infringement and invalidity to judges and juries.
Rahul has represented clients in disputes involving a broad range of complex technologies, including patents directed to medical devices, protein purification, smartphones, databases, network security, and video codecs, among others.
Most recently, Rahul was a member of the winning trial team in UCB Inc. v. Actavis, Inc., which secured an infringement verdict under the doctrine of equivalents on patents covering a transdermal patch for the administration of the anti-Parkinson’s drug rotigotine.
During law school, he worked as a summer associate at Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner, LLP, where he focused on patent prosecution. He also gained significant experience while working at the International Trade Commission’s Office of the General Counsel. Prior to joining Reichman Jorgensen, Rahul was an associate at White & Case LLP.
