Evan N. Budaj
Evan focuses his practice on intellectual property disputes and other technology-centric business litigation, including both enforcing intellectual property rights and defending against infringement claims. He holds a B.S. with honors in computer science and has worked on matters involving a wide range of complex technologies, such as relational databases, web browsers, motion-tracking technology, Wi-Fi, and other computer software and hardware technologies.
Evan began his legal career as a volunteer attorney with the San Francisco Public Defender’s Office, where he honed his litigation and trial skills, trying multiple cases through verdict as sole chair (two acquittals, one hung jury, one guilty verdict). In 2012, Evan joined the patent litigation group in the Silicon Valley office of Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP. Over almost four years with Weil, Evan represented Fortune 500 companies and others in the high-technology, internet, and entertainment sectors on patent litigation matters. During 2015-2016, Evan was a part of the opening of Kobre & Kim LLP’s new San Francisco office and intellectual property practice.
