Tyler J. Dutton is a director in Sterne Kessler’s Electronics Practice Group. He is an experienced litigator specializing in patent disputes at federal district courts, the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), and the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Tyler can tackle any technology that sends or receives data. His clients include leading companies in communications, computer graphics, bioinformatics, and automotive industries.

Tyler is known for deploying inter partes review and reexamination strategies to gain an advantage in district court litigation. Because patent litigation has so many moving parts in parallel proceedings, the best patent attorneys need a deep understanding across jurisdictions to achieve the best outcome. Tyler provides that.

Tyler also excels at figuring out how a company’s technology does or does not align with a patent claim. He has a knack for discovering information through documentation, source code, and depositions. And he is able to find distinctions in complex technologies and distill them into an easy-to-understand legal argument.

When not drafting legal briefs or in a courtroom, Tyler is most likely found summiting a mountain or planning his next adventure.

Tyler received his B.S., summa cum laude, in electronics engineering technology from South Dakota State University.
