Tamir Packin

Partner at Desmarais LLP

Tamir Packin’s practice focuses on trials of complex patent cases. He has led teams through all phases of litigation ensuring that they approach every task with an eye towards reaching a favourable verdict (or favourable pre-verdict judgment), and securing it during post-trial proceedings and on appeal.

Mr Packin’s trial and litigation experience spans a wide range of industries and technologies, including personal computers, data centre servers and switches, mobile handset technologies, computer security and software, networking equipment, wired and wireless telecommunications, voice-over-IP, cable modems, semiconductor processing, flash memory, pharmaceuticals, robotics, medical devices and ceramics.

Mr Packin’s trial skills and success have earned him recognition as one of the top up-and-coming trial lawyers in the United States. In 2020 Law360 recognised Mr Packin as a “Rising Star” – one of four individuals identified as the country’s top trial lawyers under the age of 40. Also in 2020, Mr Packin was honoured by The National Law Journal as a “Winning Litigator” – one of 2020’s “Masters of the Courtroom” – for securing a defence victory in a bench trial with $400 million in damages claims at stake against Cisco.

Beyond his technology-focused trial practice, Mr Packin also regularly volunteers to take on cases for those who cannot afford representation. His pro bono practice spans claims ranging from constitutional prisoners’ rights to simple torts.
