Antigone PeytonWe knew this already, but now it’s official. Antigone Peyton is a Virginia Super Lawyer! This elite recognition is awarded to only 5% of the lawyers in each state. Antigone was singled out because of her significant accomplishments in the field of intellectual property. She is an accomplished member of the patent bar. She writes and blogs (and podcasts!) on a variety of intellectual property and technology topics. And when it comes to esoteric technology factoids, she’s been known to go toe-to-toe with some fairly nerdy scientists and technologists. Oh, and in her day job, she lives and breathes patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret, and quirky technology law issues. But one of her favorite jobs is to litigate intellectual property cases and tell the court and jurors the back-story regarding the IP dispute, at both the trial and appellate level.

“Antigone has some of the coolest high-tech clients ever,” observed Clyde Findley, one of her colleagues at Cloudigy. “She is also one of the most knowledgeable attorneys practicing in the field of intellectual property today. As a litigator, she’s a junkyard dog. She’ll never give up fighting for her clients, and she’s extremely good at developing creative and successful strategies, not only in litigation, but in business as well.”
