David M. Fry

David focuses his practice on patent infringement and complex commercial litigation. His cases have involved agricultural chemicals, multi-function printers, RNA/DNA analytical technology, and patent licensing disputes.

David has successfully briefed and argued a wide variety of motions and other issues in the District of Delaware, both as lead and Delaware counsel. Clients and co-counsel frequently turn to David for drafting assistance on expedited motions and discovery disputes, where his briefs are persuasive, quickly drafted, and cost-effective.

Much of David’s recent practice has focused on damages analyses in patent cases. He has served as a member of the Sedona Conference’s Patent Litigation Working Group 9 on Patent Damages and Remedies, and was a contributing editor for the group’s Commentary on Case Management of Patent Damages and Remedies Issues: Section on Patent Damages Hearings.

David is actively committed to pro bono service. As part of a trial team in the Delaware Court of Chancery, David helped to secure a declaratory judgment that a school district violated state election laws during a referendum campaign. David was also part of a team that secured a 20 page, single-spaced consent order providing for structural changes in Delaware’s only women’s prison to prevent future sexual assaults. The Delaware Chapter of the ACLU recognized the significance of the consent order by awarding its 2012 Clarence Darrow Cooperating Attorney Award to David and his colleagues.

While in law school, David was the Technical Editor of the Duke Law & Technology Review and a Lead Editor of the Alaska Law Review. David also spent a summer with the American Civil Liberties Union of North Carolina, where he worked on a variety of First Amendment issues.
