Porter Hedges announced today that Miranda Jones has joined the firm as a new patent litigation partner. She has litigated patent cases across a wide spectrum of technologies from a seminal WiFi patent to biotech patents related to genetically modified crop plants to mechanical patents covering oil-rig machinery. She also participated in the legal team that secured a change in the law pertaining to induced infringement before the United States Supreme Court in Commil v.

In 2018, Texas Lawyer recognized Miranda as the ‘Top Woman in IP’. 

Miranda’s practice focuses on helping inventors and business owners navigate technical and high-stakes patent litigation. She works closely with clients to build collaborative relationships that allow her to understand and support their businesses throughout the litigation process as well as to develop efficient litigation strategies.
