Attorney Profile

A partner at Patterson + Sheridan, Jerry R. Selinger focuses his practice on intellectual property disputes and transactions, with a particular emphasis on patent law. From the firm's office in Dallas, Texas, he helps individuals and businesses throughout the greater metropolitan area. Mr. Selinger has been the lead trial attorney for both plaintiffs and defendants in more than 100 patent law cases, and he has a successful track record in that regard. He often seeks to resolve these matters through negotiations.

In one such case, Mr. Selinger represented a Texas company that believed its patents on mixed-signal devices were being infringed upon by a competitor, and he was able to arrive at a favorable settlement. In another case, he obtained a $15 million patent infringement jury award. In addition to his own clients, Mr. Selinger has filed amicus briefs on behalf of the American Intellectual Property Law Association.

Mr. Selinger has substantial experience with transactions. This has encompassed confidentiality and licensing agreements, rendering opinions on the patentability of particular assets, and due diligence regarding patents in mergers and acquisitions. Highly regarded by his peers, Mr. Selinger has been selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America.

A former member of the board of directors of the American Intellectual Property Law Association, Mr. Selinger remains an active participant in that organization as well as many others. His memberships have included the Dallas Bar Association and the Federal Circuit Bar Association. Admitted to practice in Texas, Mr. Selinger is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Courts for the Northern, Eastern, Southern and Western Districts of Texas; the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the 5th and Federal Circuits; and the Supreme Court of the United States. He received his Juris Doctor with highest honors from The George Washington University Law School.
