In September, we launched “They’ve Got Next,” a series that places our focus firmly on the future — the next generation of lawyers who are changing the game in a variety of practice areas.
In our second installment, we spotlight five young lawyers to know in the world of intellectual property: Krisina Zuñiga of Susman Godfrey; Roman Swoopes of Morrison & Foerster; Kayvan Noroozi of Noroozi; Anna Naydonov of Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner; and Ricardo Bonilla of Fish & Richardson.
These attorneys are winning key patent eligibility cases, including one that set precedent in computer graphic user interface technology. They’re leading clients through copyright battles, including one involving the design on a famous guitar. And most of all, they’re taking the reins at a young age.
“A lot of us, when we start, want to be the apprentice,” Noroozi said, referring to how some young lawyers approach work with senior partners. “Don’t come to them with problems. Come to them with your thought-out, well-proposed solution,” he told Ian Lopez, who worked with fellow reporter Matt Bultman on this project.
