Amir H Alavi represents plaintiffs and defendants in complex commercial litigation throughout the United States. He has a particular focus on IP cases and The World’s Leading Patent Professionals 2016-2020 has called him an “unflappable advocate that you can greenlight for a billion-dollar case with 100% confidence”, and a “judicious strategist” with an “acute sense of how to present a damages case”.

Mr Alavi is board certified in civil trial law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialisation, a distinction reserved for Texas trial lawyers with a high degree of trial experience and expertise. He has been recognised by attorneys across the country as one of the Best Lawyers in America for commercial litigation, is AV-rated by Martindale Hubbell and is a life fellow of the Texas Bar Foundation. And he has been consistently recognised on the Thomson Reuters Texas Super Lawyers listing and by H Texas magazine as a “Top Lawyer in Houston”.

Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) magazine also said Mr Alavi “is a commercial litigator par excellence with valuable in-house insight, having previously served as general counsel of a company with 5,000 employees. The savvy case handler knows when to take up arms and when to chase a settlement”. IAM also described him as “someone you can match up against any lawyer in the country and be confident of a win. Drawing on a deep reservoir of trial experience he delivers knife-like advocacy timed to perfection”.
