Steve Papazian is an intellectual property attorney and the founder of Papazian IP Law, APC. After graduating from Stanford University and, later, the USC Gould School of Law, Papazian began his practice at Kirkland & Ellis, LLP, where he focused on patent litigation in U.S. District Courts and the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. In that role, he represented many of the largest technology companies in the world, including Apple, Cisco and Medtronic, and dealt with a diverse range of technological areas, including chip design, Power-over-Ethernet, aerospace radar systems, network routing and switching protocols, and medical devices.

Five years later, Papazian moved to an IP boutique law firm where he expanded his practice, litigating patent, copyright, trademark, Lanham Act and other claims in state and federal court. As a complement to this litigation practice, he also developed years of experience actively counseling clients — including Fortune 500 companies and start-ups — across a range of strategic intellectual property and business decisions, including licensing discussions, patent portfolio assessments and other intellectual property strategy.

Re: Robin Craig

Professor Robin Craig was interviewed about the Navajo nation's water issues in a drought-stricken area. "Craig said the 9th Circuit’s approach comes from a 1908 Supreme Court case that found tribes had some water rights where they were not explicitly granted."
