Dr. Seth Ogden focuses his practice on patent litigation and the protection of clients’ trade secrets. He has extensive experience in the pharmaceutical, medical device, biotechnology, and chemical technology industries. His scientific background and years of experience in the laboratory give him a unique insight when working with clients in these industries.
Seth litigates intellectual property cases throughout the country, in inter partes review proceedings before the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeal Board, and in Section 337 investigations before the International Trade Commission and has argued before the Federal Circuit. He is also experienced in pre-trial discovery work, claim analysis, and motions practice. Outside of litigation, Seth has proficiency in developing trade secret protection plans for clients ranging from industrial manufacturers to data analytics firms.
Seth also maintains a robust veterans’ benefits pro bono practice assisting veterans with disability claims. He has pursued veterans’ claims to the Board of Veterans Appeals and the Court of Veterans Claims. Seth has been honored with an Attorney for Justice Award for several years by the Tennessee Supreme Court, most recently in 2020, for his pro bono work with veterans.
Seth’s spare time is spent with his family. He enjoys playing devil’s advocate for his wife, a professor of pediatric infectious disease at Vanderbilt, as she plans her next research grant. On Sunday afternoons, he has the pleasure of watching his son hit the ice for hockey practice in the Termites League, and there’s nothing better than a family viewing of the latest episode of Pete the Cat.
