Ms. Gu specializes in intellectual property counseling and litigation, with a focus on patent litigation and Inter Partes Review (“IPR”).  Ms. Gu began her legal career in 2006 as an intellectual property associate at Perkins Coie LLP’s Menlo Park office.  While at Perkins Coie, she worked on both patent litigation and prosecution cases for clients ranging from Fortune 100 corporations to individual inventors.  Ms. Gu became an associate at Kirkland and Ellis LLP in 2008, and represented major corporations such as Samsung and IBM on patent litigation matters in both federal district courts and the International Trade Commission.

After joining Turner Boyd in 2012, Ms. Gu continued her litigation practice in federal district courts, including patent and trademark matters that culminated in bench and jury trials.  Having been a registered practitioner before the USPTO since 2002, she also expanded her practice to IPRs, and successfully represented major corporations including Sony and ASUS before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.

Ms. Gu’s patent experiences, both in prosecution and litigation, involved a broad scope of technologies such as semiconductor processing, semiconductor image sensors, LEDs, cell phone and computer accessory designs, secure internet transactions, cryptography, GPS navigation, image processing, silicon heat treatments, printer data processing, flash memory fabrication, and compressor wheel manufacturing processes.

Ms. Gu was a Chancellor’s scholar at the University of California, Berkeley while studying for a B.S. degree in Electric Engineering and Computer Science.  Prior to attending law school at the University of California Hastings College of the Law, she worked as a patent agent and drafted numerous patent applications.  While attending law school, she worked on the Hastings Communication and Entertainment Law Journal and summered as a patent associate at Dewey Ballantine LLP, Perkins Coie LLP, and Howrey LLP.
