The Recorder named Gregory P. Stone a 2010 Attorney of the Year. One of only 19 attorneys recognized by The Recorder, Mr. Stone was acknowledged for his patent and antitrust work on behalf of Rambus Inc., including four trials over the past four years. His work positioned the memory chip designer to reach a $900 million settlement in January 2010 with Samsung Electronics.
Profiled in the March 7, 2011 edition of the newspaper, Mr. Stone said that going to trial is his favorite part of law practice. “Finding that human side, understanding it, and presenting it has always been a tremendous enjoyment for me,” he said.
Mr. Stone grew up on a cattle ranch in the small town of Glennville, CA. He attended the same three-room schoolhouse that both his mother and grandmother attended before receiving a bachelor’s and master’s degree in chemical engineering from the California Institute of Technology. He obtained his J.D. from Yale Law School. Mr. Stone and his brother still run the family’s cattle ranch and farm.
Mr. Stone is a partner in the Los Angeles office of Munger Tolles. He specializes in intellectual property, antitrust and class action product liability cases.
