Mayer Brown (Palo Alto)

Christopher J. Kelly is Partner at Mayer Brown (Palo Alto). Mr. Kelly’s antitrust litigation practice focuses on the application of antitrust law to the acquisition and use of intellectual property rights. He counsels and represents clients regarding antitrust implications of patent pools, licensing, standard-setting and patent infringement litigation and settlement. Chris co-authored the Supreme Court briefs that led to an important antitrust victory for intellectual property owners, one of a number of accomplishments that led his peers to select him for The Best Lawyers in America in the area of antitrust law. He also has helped major corporations plan integration for pending mergers without creating unnecessary antitrust risk. Prior to entering private practice, Chris served in several significant positions over 16 years at the United States Department of Justice, Antitrust Division. From 1996 until 2001, he was the Division’s Senior Counsel for Intellectual Property, advising Justice Department officials on a range of legal and policy issues such as patent pools, infringement settlements, the future of the Internet Domain Name System, and database protection. He also was Special Assistant US Attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia, and following law school served a judicial clerkship with Judge John A. Terry of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals. Chris practiced at another national law firm before joining Mayer Brown in 2003. He is a conversational speaker of German and Italian.
