Described by clients as “an exceptional attorney” who “has unbelievable credibility with judges and juries,” Doug Dixon navigates complex technological, regulatory, and business matters across multiple areas of the law.
Mr. Dixon’s practice spans a wide range of litigation in federal and state courts at the trial and appellate levels and before arbitral tribunals. He focuses on complex business litigation, intellectual property litigation, securities litigation, international arbitration, and other high-stakes commercial disputes. Mr. Dixon also has extensive experience with internal and government investigations.
Mr. Dixon is currently handling a series of very high-profile matters defending Southern California Edison against civil claims arising out of the 2017 Thomas Fire, the 2018 Montecito mudslides, and the 2018 Woolsey Fire. He also recently won a motion for preliminary injunction for ClearOne, Inc., in a patent infringement suit, enjoining a large, multinational competitor’s manufacture, marketing, and sale of a competing product. And in 2017, he represented Western Digital and its SanDisk subsidiaries in their widely publicized dispute with Toshiba over anti-transfer provisions in joint venture agreements governing the manufacture and development of NAND flash memory. The dispute encompassed multiple ICC arbitrations and litigation in the California trial and appellate courts, where SanDisk secured injunctive relief in aid of the arbitrations.
Mr. Dixon also is an experienced trial attorney. He was a key member of the trial team that recently obtained a favorable jury verdict that awarded full damages in the Eastern District of Texas because all accused products of defendant LG infringed his client’s patents. He also has tried cases involving securities fraud claims and breach of contract.
Mr. Dixon was recognized in the 2018 and 2019 editions of The Best Lawyers in America in the practice area of commercial litigation, a distinction extended to the top 5 percent of private-practice lawyers nationwide as determined by their peers. Benchmark Litigation also recognized him as a “Future Star.”
