[Mr. Healy] is one of the best patent lawyers in America. Not only does he get great results, but he is efficient and always quick to respond to my requests. He really cares about his clients and their cases.” - Dr. Koenraad Wuyts, Chief IP Officer, KPN

Andres Healy is a sought-after trial lawyer who specializes in intellectual property and complex commercial disputes and represents clients ranging from multi-billion-dollar industry leaders to individual inventors.

Mr. Healy’s results speak for themself. He has secured a significant number of wins on behalf of clients like Dutch telecommunications provider Koninklijke KPN N.V. (KPN) and technology innovator Ancora Technologies Inc. These victories have included:

  • Winning a $31.5 million jury victory on behalf of KPN against Swedish telecom giant Ericsson in a patent infringement suit relating to telecom network equipment. The verdict concluded a more than five-year dispute between the companies, with the jury awarding KPN the full amount of damages claimed.
  • Persuading the Federal Circuit to reverse the invalidation of one of KPN’s patents and hold that it is valid under 35 U.S.C. § 101 as a matter of law. This decision was covered by leading legal publications due  to the precedent it set.
  • Convincing the Federal Circuit to reject a challenge by HTC Corporation to the “long-established rule that suits against aliens are wholly outside the operation of all the federal venue laws, general and special.”  This landmark result was covered by Law360 and the Delaware Business Court Insider.
  • Successfully arguing for the US District Court for the Western District of Texas to deny motions for summary judgment filed by LG Electronics against Ancora Technologies. The case settled shortly thereafter.
  • Nabbing a win for KPN when he persuaded the US District Court for the District of Delaware to grant summary judgment to KPN several FRAND and other counterclaims brought against it by leading smartphone manufacturers such as HTC, Lenovo/Motorola, and BlackBerry.
  • Securing summary judgement from the US District Court for the District of Delaware for KPN that it did not breach an obligation to license its intellectual property on FRAND terms. The case settled shortly thereafter.

Mr. Healy joined Susman Godfrey’s Seattle office after graduating first in his class from the University of Florida Levin College of Law and completing federal clerkships for Hon. Richard Tallman of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and Hon. Robert Lasnik of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington.
