Daily Journal Names Kang, Guy and Williams as 2021 ‘Top Intellectual Property Lawyers’


Palo Alto/San Francisco, April 23, 2021 – Baker Botts L.L.P., a leading international technology and energy law firm, is pleased to announce that the Daily Journal named partners Peter Kang, G. Hopkins Guy and Eliot Williams to its list of ‘Top Intellectual Property Lawyers’ for 2021.

Daily Journal’s annual list of Top IP Lawyers is compiled from hundreds of nominations submitted by lawyers statewide, with the editors selecting nominees based on the impact of their work in intellectual property.

The publication highlighted Kang’s nearly 30-year career litigating patent disputes and his role authoring a leading treatise on litigating patent cases in the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) as well as chapters in other books on litigating before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board and on protecting patents in Asia.

Guy, the publication noted, “has more than 30 years’ experience in Silicon Valley as a patent litigator representing high-tech companies with complex patent, trade secret and commercial contract litigation needs.” He is currently representing DISH Network and DraftKings.

“Williams has appeared as counsel in more than 181 Patent Trial and Appeal Board trials, placing him among the top 25 most experienced PTAB litigators nationwide,” the publication noted. This is William’s fifth consecutive year of being recognized by the Daily Journal as a Top IP lawyer.

Earlier this year, Baker Botts was recognized as the “Firm That Won the Most Often” in U.S. District Court patent challenges over the last five years by Docket Navigator, which reported in its “Year in Review” issue that the firm had a win rate of 97.6% from 2016 to 2020.
