With an eye towards litigation, Michael prepares applications and prosecutes robust patents and provides critical insight

Michael Liu Su focuses his practice on patent prosecution and due diligence investigations. Since starting his career more than a decade ago, Michael has been involved in prosecution and diligence work, but has also accumulated extensive litigation experience.

The insight Michael gained through litigation helps him craft strategic and creative solutions to his clients’ complex legal and technical issues.

Michael has represented innovator companies in high-stakes litigation and arbitration. His experience includes developing pre-litigation strategy, drafting contentions, conducting fact and expert discovery, briefing summary judgment, and trying and appealing cases. Additionally, Michael has worked on multiple inter partes reviews and post-grant reviews, on both the patent owner’s and petitioner’s sides and spanning all stages, from petitions, patent owner responses, petitioner replies, depositions, oral hearings, and appeals. His technical experience spans a wide range of areas in the life sciences space, including antibodies, enzymes, diagnostic and detection methods, medical devices, and small molecule therapeutics.
