A&O partner Lisa Nguyen received the 2022 Women of Influence award from The Silicon Valley Business Journal, an award that recognizes female leaders who are significantly impacting their industries and communities at large.

“We are thrilled for Lisa to be recognized for her exceptional work with clients across the technology sector,” said U.S. senior partner Tim House. “Having joined A&O earlier this year, she is a leading force for our Technology Practice. Lisa truly deserves the award not only for her as a woman at the heart of technology innovation in Silicon Valley, but also for her outstanding performance serving clients and her commitment to the surrounding community.”

Lisa serves as lead counsel for cutting-edge technology companies in intellectual property matters. She represents clients in complex multi-patent, multi-jurisdictional cases and handles cases pending before district courts across the country, the International Trade Commission (ITC), and the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB). She has successfully obtained dismissals at the pleading stage, summary judgment wins, trial victories, and attorney fee awards.

Lisa also works to advance women and diverse individuals into leadership positions at all stages of the legal pipeline through her work with organizations that advance individuals from underrepresented groups in the legal field. She co-founded the Silicon Valley Chapter of Women In-House Support Equality (an alliance of senior in-house and outside counsel), and serves on the Advisory Board for the PracticePro Diversity Program, coaching and training law students to succeed in the legal profession. Lisa also serves on the Board of Directors of the Asian Law Alliance, serving low-income communities in Silicon Valley.

“I’m honored to receive this prestigious award that recognizes such accomplished women from across all industries, especially in the competitive and fast-paced environment of Silicon Valley,” said Lisa Nguyen.

Lisa has been listed among the Top 50 Women in PTAB Trials, an Asian Leader Worth Watching, and a Rising Star in IP Litigation. She also regularly speaks and writes on patent counseling and IP issues, having spoken at the Advanced Patent Law Institute, Berkeley Center for Law and Technology, the National Conference of Vietnamese American Attorneys, and the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association.

Lisa will be honored with the award at the Women of Influence ceremony on Thursday, June 16, 2022, in San Jose, California.
