Hilda C. Galvan

Hilda Galvan has tried complex intellectual property cases before courts across the country and in the International Trade Commission for more than 20 years. She has represented clients as plaintiffs and defendants in patent, copyright, trademark, and trade secret cases. Her experience in patent cases extends to a variety of technologies, including software, smart utility metering systems, telecommunication systems, computer networking, semiconductor chip packaging and circuitry, and navigation systems.

Hilda has successfully represented clients in some of their most important lawsuits. Recently, on behalf of SAS Institute, she won summary judgment of invalidity in a patent infringement case involving a software patent that had been the subject of an earlier case against various software companies. She was also successful in staying a multipatent case filed by Intellectual Ventures against members of the financial institutions sector, including BBVA Compass.

Hilda has been nationally recognized for her successes by numerous publications, including The Best Lawyers in America, Dallas Business Journal ("Top 15 Business Defense Lawyers"), Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers for Business, and IAM Patent Litigation as one of the top intellectual property litigators in Texas. IAM's 2012 edition singled out Hilda's national reputation for her "dynamic advocacy skills."

Hilda also represents clients in reexamination and post-grant proceedings at the USPTO and the Patent Trial Appeal Board.

Hilda is Partner-in-Charge of the Dallas Office and is actively involved in the community, including serving as president of the Honorable Barbara M.G. Lynn Inn of Courts, chair of the Dallas Bar IP Section, and chair of the HNBA Latina Commission Leadership Program Committee.
