Josh Krevitt

Josh A. Krevitt, a partner in the New York and Palo Alto offices of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, is Co-Chair of Gibson Dunn’s Intellectual Property Practice—one of the premier IP practices in the country—and is a member of Gibson Dunn’s Executive Committee. Mr. Krevitt focuses on intellectual property litigation, chiefly patent litigation, as well as complex commercial litigation.

Mr. Krevitt has successfully represented some of the leading technology companies in the world in some of their most important and challenging intellectual property matters. He has represented companies such as AT&T, T-Mobile, Sharp, EMC, Novo Nordisk, Microsoft, RealNetworks, Viacom, Cablevision, Thomson, Helio,, Napster, Ricoh, MobiTV, Red Hat, Novell and Square in intellectual property litigation matters.

Mr. Krevitt has successfully tried complex, high-stakes patent infringement cases – both jury trials and bench trials – in U.S. District Courts as well as the U.S. International Trade Commission. Mr. Krevitt also has argued and successfully handled numerous appeals in the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals. Mr. Krevitt’s cases have generally involved numerous patents and enormous stakes, and have concerned a wide variety of technologies, including wireless devices and transmissions, ANDA litigation, LCD design and fabrication, microprocessor design, data and telecommunications hardware and software, and semiconductor and integrated circuit design and fabrication, as well as many areas relating to the Internet, such as the compression, storage and transmission of content, and routers and switches.

Mr. Krevitt is consistently ranked as one of the leading Intellectual Property litigators in the country by The Best Lawyers in America©, The Legal 500 US, Benchmark Litigation, Chambers Global, and Chambers USA. Chambers describes Mr. Krevitt as a “formidable litigator,” “extremely smart,” a “superb strategic thinker who has the ability to come in and quickly discern which pieces of a case matter,” and “excellent trial lawyer.” In addition, Mr. Krevitt is recognized by Law360 as an “IP Litigation MVP” and Managing Intellectual Property magazine as an “IP Star.”

AmLaw Litigation Daily named Mr. Krevitt “Litigator of the Week” for his successful defense at trial of T-Mobile USA, Inc., in a patent infringement lawsuit brought by Realtime Data, LLC. Mr. Krevitt also was named to the
IP Law & Business list of the “Top 50 IP” lawyers under age 45 in the United States, which features those in-house counsel, outside counsel and academics who “are distinguished by their sheer brainpower, legal smarts, creativity and hard work.” The story praised Mr. Krevitt’s role as “lead counsel for a long list of technology companies” and recognized the many instances in which companies involved in major patent litigations have switched counsel mid-litigation to use Mr. Krevitt and Gibson Dunn.

Mr. Krevitt also has extensive experience successfully representing a wide range of clients in major trade secret, copyright, media and other complex commercial litigation matters.

Before joining Gibson Dunn, Mr. Krevitt was a partner in the New York and Silicon Valley offices of Weil, Gotshal & Manges. His move to Gibson Dunn was described by The American Lawyer as one of the “Star Lateral Moves” in 2006.

Mr. Krevitt has written and lectured regarding diverse intellectual property and litigation issues. Mr. Krevitt also has served on several public interest Boards of Directors, including, most recently, the Board of the Office of the Appellate Defender in New York City, and has served as pro bono counsel to the Boards of Directors of several public service organizations, including New Yorkers for Parks and Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts.
