Noori Torabi is a litigation associate in the firm’s San Francisco office. She focuses her practice on intellectual property law with an emphasis on patent litigation, inter partes review proceedings, and IP risk management and counseling in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and medical devices industries.  

Noori has experience in all stages of district court litigation including trial. As a member of multiple trial teams, Noori plays a key role in all stages of litigation, from developing case strategies, constructing invalidity and non-infringement defenses, conducting discovery including taking and defending depositions, and drafting dispositive motions, to preparing trial witnesses. Coupled with her extensive knowledge on patent law, Noori’s technical background and her PhD in molecular biology assist her ability to consult and defend biotech and generic pharmaceutical companies in matters concerning an array of scientific issues.

In addition to her trial work, Noori advises clients on patent validity and infringement, provides freedom-to-operate analyses, and conducts due diligence investigations, and provides strategic advice to clients in accordance with business objectives

While receiving her Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from Princeton University, Noori investigated the genetic basis of complex hereditary traits in yeast. She designed and performed various experimental and computational techniques, including high throughput phenotyping and genotyping of extremely large numbers of progeny from a cross between two yeast strains. Noori published four peer-reviewed articles in Nature and PLoS Genetics.

Noori is actively involved in pro bono work. In particular, she has worked on cases involving voting rights, immigration and education advocacy. She also regularly volunteers to help immigrants apply for asylum or citizenship.
