New York Patent Litigator Scott Lindvall Joins Seyfarth


Seyfarth Shaw LLP announced today that Scott Lindvall has joined the firm’s Litigation department in New York as partner and chair of Seyfarth’s Intellectual Property Trial practice. Lindvall comes from Arnold & Porter LLP, where he was a partner in its Patent Litigation group in New York.

For more than 30 years, Lindvall’s practice has focused on high-stakes patent litigation concerning a large collection of technologies on behalf of some of the largest telecommunications, aerospace, automotive, pharmaceutical, and software companies in the world. A veteran in first chair jury and bench trials, Lindvall has tried a substantial number of noteworthy patent infringement cases to favorable verdict.

“Scott has successfully litigated complex patent matters for some of the largest global technology and telecommunications companies,” said Kate Perrelli, chair of Seyfarth’s Litigation department. “He adds considerable value to our intellectual property practice and his extensive patent trial experience brings another dimension to our national litigation bench.”

In addition to patent litigation, Lindvall has represented technology companies in trade secret jury trials and has advised key members of the pharmaceutical industry in Hatch-Waxman litigation. Prior to his legal career, Lindvall worked at a major aerospace company as a research engineer involved in computational fluid dynamics.

“We are delighted to welcome Scott to our team. His celebrated patent litigation practice nicely compliments the full suite of services we offer clients here on the East Coast and throughout the country,” said Lorie Almon, co-managing partner of Seyfarth’s New York office.

A member of the Board of Trustees at the Marshall-Wythe School of Law Foundation, Lindvall received his J.D. from William & Mary Law School where he served as an editor at the William and Mary Law Review. He earned a M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Washington University and received a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering, cum laude, from Virginia Tech.

“Those that know Scott praise his trial skills and legal acumen, describing him as a true trial lawyer with patent credentials. He joins an already talented IP group both nationally, as well as in New York,” said John Napoli, co-managing partner of Seyfarth’s New York office.
