Eligio is a member of the Executive Committee and a Shareholder at McAndrews. For 25 years, he has litigated and tried complex, high-stakes patent cases in courts across the United States. He has represented clients in billion-dollar Federal court disputes, as well as in arbitrations, including one resulting in a $166 million award in favor of his client. As trial counsel, Eligio uses these experiences to guide all aspects of trial strategy and preparation, including complex discovery and related post-grant proceedings before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The result is pragmatic and cost-effective dispute resolution.

Eligio also maintains an active transactional practice, advising clients on a range of issues including patent portfolio management, licensing, freedom to operate opinions, and mergers and acquisitions.

His successful litigation and transactional practice has touched on a diverse spectrum of technologies, including orthopedic implants, semiconductor devices, cybersecurity software, coronary stent delivery systems, fuel cells, ocular implants, VR/AR technology, thermal hand-held labelers and printers, ultrasonic medical devices, barcode scanners, and machine vision products.  Eligio’s clients benefit from the hands-on experience he gained working for several years as an engineer at 3M Company and Bechtel Corporation.
