Chad Everingham

Charles “Chad” Everingham IV has had an extensive career in both public service and private practice handling patent litigation and other intellectual property and commercial disputes. A former magistrate judge in the Eastern District of Texas, one of the busiest patent litigation courts in the nation, Mr. Everingham conducted Markman proceedings and complex patent trials involving medical devices, computer hardware and software, recreational equipment, advanced electronics, semiconductors, and automotive products.

Since his return to private practice in 2011, Mr. Everingham has litigated a wide variety of intellectual property matters and other business disputes for clients ranging from individuals to large corporations. He has defended clients against claims of patent infringement in the consumer electronics, telecommunications, energy, hospitality, and software industries. He also has successfully prosecuted claims for trade secret misappropriation on behalf of a Texas neurosurgeon involving spinal implant technology.

His work has earned recognition as a leading practitioner in intellectual property law, most recently by Texas Super Lawyers and Chambers USA. Mr. Everingham also has been recognized for his IP and patent litigation work by The Best Lawyers in America since 2018.

Mr. Everingham grew up in East Texas and received his undergraduate degree from Stephen F. Austin State University. A graduate of Baylor University School of Law, he served as a permanent law clerk to Judge T. John Ward during his term in the Eastern District of Texas.
