    “Mr. Bunis is a great litigator and delivers incredible service.”
    “His communication, anticipation of our needs and interactions with our internal clients is top notch.”


    Michael Bunis, co-chair of Choate’s Intellectual Property Litigation Practice Group, helps biotech, pharmaceutical, other life sciences and technology clients to grow and protect their core competitive advantage, their intellectual property assets. With over 26 years of experience, he has tried cases before juries and judges throughout the United States. His success in advising clients on defending or enforcing intellectual property rights is largely attributable to the way he approaches every engagement – beginning with a clear understanding of how an eventual trial on the matter would play out and be won.

    Clients also appreciate how Michael combines his trial experience with practical skills developed in part from his prior roles in industry. From 1999 to 2003, Michael served as Global General Manager for the Internet media company Terra Lycos. In that role, Michael led an international shared services organization focused on the development of platform services supporting billions of dollars of advertising revenue.

    Michael’s clients have included Alnylam, HP Enterprises, New England BioLabs, and Brooks Automation.
