Ashley Moore is the Dallas Office Managing Partner of Michelman & Robinson, and a member of the firm’s Intellectual Property and Commercial & Business Litigation practice groups. She began trying patent and trade secret cases as a first-year associate. Since that time, Ashley has established herself among the leading IP lawyers in the United States, having been recognized as one of the “500 Leading Litigators in America” by Lawdragon, a “Leading Lawyer in Patent Litigation” by both The Legal 500 and Best Lawyers in America, and a “Top Woman in IP” by Texas Lawyer. These are just a few of Ashley’s prestigious awards and rankings for professional excellence.

Over the years, Ashley has been involved in a number of consequential litigations that have shaped the patent, licensing, and trade secret practices of some of the most successful companies in the world. She has tried cases for—and against—titans of industry in the medical, cellular, Wi-Fi, oilfield, and other high-tech sectors, resulting in verdicts for hundreds of millions for her plaintiff clients. When on the other side of the aisle, she has secured take-nothing judgments well in advance of trial. She also defends those wins at the Federal Circuit, most recently in a surgical device case against a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary.

Ashley is equally adept at the PTAB. She is tapped regularly as lead counsel in inter partes review proceedings to protect her clients’ concurrent litigations. Her depth of knowledge with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office stems from years as a patent agent, counseling clients on the most impactful strategies for prosecuting, acquiring, licensing, and/or divesting patent assets. For that reason, she also frequently advises start-ups on all phases of intellectual property protection, whether through patents, trade secrets, or contractual obligations.

Passionate about diversity in the workplace and especially in the courtroom, Ashley has had the pleasure and distinction of fielding diverse trial and appellate teams on her cases. She also spends countless hours mentoring, training, and advocating for women to have opportunities to showcase their skills.
