Jeff Dyess is a litigation partner with over two decades of experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants in the areas of intellectual property, competitive practice, trade secret and complex commercial disputes.

Jeff’s approach to litigation focuses on the partnership between the client and counsel. He believes that effective representation of the client – representation that achieves both short-term success in the immediate litigation as well as servicing the client’s long-term business goals – is best achieved when counsel understands the client’s business, its people and its culture.

Jeff is a member of Bradley’s Litigation and Intellectual Property Practice Groups. He is admitted to practices in all federal district courts in Alabama, as well as the United States Courts of Appeal for the Eleventh Circuit and the Federal Circuit. In 2002, Jeff was admitted to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. He also has patent litigation experience before the International Trade Commission and the Patent Trial and Appeal Board of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Prior to joining Bradley in August 2003, Jeff was a partner in the law firm of Barnett, Bugg, Lee & Dyess, LLC, in Monroeville, Alabama, where he practiced in the areas of real estate litigation and transactions, probate matters, commercial transactions, and litigation and insurance defense. Jeff grew up in Monroeville and attended Auburn University, graduating summa cum laude in 1990 with a Bachelor of Industrial Engineering degree. After Auburn, he worked as an engineer for IBM Corporation in its manufacturing facilities in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. Jeff then attended Cumberland Law School, graduating magna cum laude in 1995. Following law school, Jeff had the honor of serving as a law clerk to the Hon. William M. Acker, Jr., of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama in Birmingham.
