Vincent J. Galluzzo


Vincent J. Galluzzo is a partner in Crowell & Moring's Washington, D.C. office and a member of the firm's Intellectual Property and Litigation Groups. Vince is a trial lawyer who focuses on high-stakes, multi-venue patent and trade secret litigation and appeals across a wide range of technologies. His recent courtroom victories include a jury verdict for Siemens against Westinghouse on eight of Siemens’ patents relating to train-control technology, followed by another win for Siemens after a two-week preliminary injunction trial on Westinghouse’s claims of trade secret misappropriation. Vince has also been lead or backup counsel in over 30 post-grant proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB). In addition to his litigation work, Vince also counsels clients on intellectual property monetization strategies, including portfolio management, enforcement, and licensing.

Before attending law school, Vince worked as a software developer. Vince is regularly called upon to act as an in-house software expert to read computer source code and to interface with expert witnesses or engineers to discuss highly technical matters and formulate appropriate case strategy.

Vince is proud of his ongoing pro bono representation of Crosley Green, an innocent man who was wrongfully convicted of murder in Florida in 1990. After many years up and down the Florida court system, Vince and the rest of the Crosley Green team at Crowell won federal habeas corpus relief for Mr. Green in 2018, and are currently defending that win at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.  

Vince is also a lecturer at Johns Hopkins University, where he has taught privacy law to graduate students in the Whiting School of Engineering’s Information Security Institute since 2017.

While in law school, he was communications editor of the Florida Law Review and was a member of the executive board of the Florida Moot Court Team. As a member of the Florida Law Review, Vince won the Gertrude Brick Prize for best student note published in the 2008-09 year.
