Amy Candido has joined US law firm Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati as a partner in its San Francisco office.

She will join the firm's trial and IP litigation practices from California-based law firm Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan.

Before joining Quinn Emanuel in 2005, Candido began her legal career at Cravath, Swaine & Moore in New York.

With more than 20 years of experience, Candido is a trial lawyer who focuses on high-stakes, complex patent, trade secret, and other IP litigation. She has successfully represented clients in numerous jury trials, and bench trials before the US International Trade Commission.

“Amy is an outstanding lawyer with an impressive track record in high-profile IP trials, as well as a trusted advisor to technology companies of all sizes involved in challenging legal and business disputes,” said Doug Clark, managing partner at Wilson Sonsini.

“Our firm's innovative clients increasingly need highly experienced trial lawyers such as Amy, who not only have the ability to understand their technology, but also the skill and fortitude to represent them at the highest level in court. Amy is a terrific addition to our team and will be of great value to our clients.”

She regularly speaks at conferences and publishes on a wide range of IP topics, including trade secrets, damages, and the intersection of IP and antitrust law. In addition to IP disputes, Candido has litigated antitrust, securities, employment, and complex commercial matters. 

“I am excited to join Wilson Sonsini—a firm with a stellar reputation, deep ties to an impressive roster of technology-driven clients, and a record of success taking on challenging, cutting-edge disputes. I look forward to helping grow Wilson Sonsini's thriving trial and IP litigation practices,” said Candido.
