Stefani Shanberg is a trial lawyer, specializing in representing technology companies in patent infringement cases before the federal courts, the International Trade Commission, and arbitral tribunals. She is the go-to advisor for many of the hottest technology companies facing IP lawsuits and has extensive experience in all areas of IP litigation and in complex commercial litigation relating to IP.

Ms. Shanberg’s patent litigation engagements have related to diverse technologies, and her clients have ranged from venture-backed startups to Fortune 100 public companies. Ms. Shanberg has obtained successful outcomes, often based on creative and novel issues of law, including winning cases at trial, winning cases on summary judgment and on motions to dismiss, prevailing on advantageous claim constructions, winning motions to transfer and stay, and convincing the Ninth Circuit and Federal Circuit Courts of Appeal to affirm favorable lower-court rulings.

While her practice involves matters pending throughout the nation, Ms. Shanberg has particular experience with investigations before the International Trade Commission. In 2016, she became the first West Coast President of the ITC Trial Lawyers Association (ITCTLA).

Ms. Shanberg is regularly recognized as a leading IP litigator and as among the top women in technology law. The Daily Journal has named her among its Top 75 Intellectual Property Litigators in California every year since 2011. She has also been named to the Daily Journal’s Top Women Lawyers in California list for the past four years. Similarly, The Recorder has named her to its Women Leaders in Tech Law list each of the past three years. She has been named to the San Francisco Business Times’ 40 Under 40 Class of 2015, and to the Daily Journal’s Top 20 Under 40 for 2011.
