Intellectual Property Litigation and Counseling
Business and Commercial Litigation

Jonathan’s firm, Sobel & Feller, is an intellectual property boutique focusing on litigation, counseling, licensing, and commercialization work in the areas of patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, and other intellectual property. Jonathan’s firm also handles business and commercial litigation and dispute resolution.

Jonathan has substantial trial and litigation experience in patent cases in various jurisdictions. These cases have involved, among other technologies, medical devices, wireless networking, bar code scanning, light-emitting diodes, computer software and hardware, and internet-related methods and systems.

Jonathan has also litigated trademark and trade secret disputes in a range of industries, such as apparel, restaurants, mortgage and finance, and medical devices.

A significant part of Sobel & Feller’s practice involves IP commercialization, particularly in the medical device area. We are partners with an orthopedic surgeon in a medical device start-up company (called Augmenta Spine), and work with a range of other entrepreneurial physicians. We enjoy developing creative and value-added solutions for clients in the context of licensing and development arrangements.

Sobel & Feller does a significant amount of patent defense work, including on behalf of Motorola Solutions, and won a significant victory before the Federal Circuit on Motorola’s behalf in December 2012 in the Raylon case, where the Federal Circuit reversed a denial of Rule 11 sanctions and found the case frivolous.

Jonathan was selected by his peers for inclusion in New York Super Lawyers, for Intellectual Property Litigation, in 2008, 2009, and 2011-13.

Prior to founding Sobel & Feller in April 2009, Jonathan was a partner for five years at Hogan & Hartson (now Hogan Lovells). Prior to that, he was with Clifford Chance and Chadbourne & Parke.

Jonathan received his J.D. in 1994 (cum laude) from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, where he was an Articles Editor for the Cardozo Law Review, and a B.S. in Finance in 1991 (cum laude) from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania.
