Gregg F LoCascio routinely serves as lead trial counsel for clients on major IP and commercial litigation matters. He has repeatedly obtained successful results for Firm clients and has been recognised by Chambers, Managing IP and other publications for his courtroom skills and experience.

Mr LoCascio counsels and represents companies of all sizes across various fields and industries, involving technologies as varied as battery cathode chemistry, radio frequency identification tolling systems, low global warming potential refrigerants, seismic surveying, cyclonic vacuums, photo uploading and manipulation software, neurological magnetic resonance imaging, industrial control software, genetically modified crop technology and fibre-optic transmission networks. He routinely serves as lead trial counsel in federal and state courts and arbitrations nationwide. He is admitted to practise before the US Patent and Trademark Office, has appeared before the International Trade Commission (ITC) on Section 337 investigations and has handled inter partes review and re-examination proceedings. He has successfully argued multiple times before the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.

His recent wins include leading the enforcement effort to BASF and Argonne National Laboratory at the ITC against an importer of infringing advanced lithium-ion battery technology. Following a win at trial, Mr LoCascio also handled the first live hearing before the ITC in a Section 337 case in almost a decade, which resulted in a successful final determination and issuance of an exclusion order. He also recently obtained a Federal Circuit affirmance confirming the validity of a Honeywell patent claim directed to a next-generation low global warming potential refrigerant.

Mr LoCascio holds a JD (cum laude) from the University of Notre Dame Law School and a BS from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.
