Drew Woodmansee has more than 20 years of experience representing clients in high-stakes patent litigation throughout the United States. He is a veteran patent trial lawyer, having tried cases to verdict in jury trials, bench trials, and in Section 337 investigations before the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC).

Drew primarily represents clients in the life sciences and health care fields, handling patent cases in the medical device, diagnostics, surgical equipment, and pharmaceutical industries. He currently represents Dexcom in patent litigation related to continuous glucose monitors. After the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) granted Dexcom's petitions and commenced inter partes reviews (IPRs) of two asserted patents, the district court granted Dexcom's motion to stay. In June 2017, he and a multioffice Jones Day team filed a complaint in the ITC for Hologic, Inc. related to digital breast imaging systems.

Drew is a seasoned trial attorney who has litigated and tried numerous cases for pharmaceutical clients under the Hatch-Waxman Act. Prior to joining Jones Day in 2016, Drew also represented a San Diego-based diagnostics company in a patent dispute that involved one bench trial and two jury trials. The jury delivered a defense verdict for Drew's client, which the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit later affirmed. In 2013 Drew served as lead counsel for Kyocera Corporation in a two-week ITC evidentiary hearing. The Administrative Law Judge concluded that none of the 14 accused Kyocera smartphones infringed the asserted patents.
