Ewa Davison, Ph.D., focuses her practice on litigating patent matters for companies in the life sciences, biotechnology, pharmaceutical and chemistry arenas. Ewa’s experience includes resolving disputes in the federal district courts and the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, in addition to her growing inter partes review (IPR) practice.
Ewa was selected as a Washington “Rising Star” in the area of Intellectual Property Litigation in 2016 and 2015, and was awarded the Outstanding Volunteer in Public Service by The Bar Association of San Francisco for her pro bono work in 2014.
