Our patent litigation team mobilizes technical and scientific knowledge, business understanding, and courtroom experience to protect your patent rights. Our attorneys have handled hundreds of patent litigations in courts throughout the United States, including in those jurisdictions known for speedy dispositions and expedited paths to trial.
We are recognized nationally for our patent litigation capabilities, which includes a network of attorneys throughout the world who facilitate a global approach, where needed, to the resolution of patent disputes. Our patent litigators and prosecutors work closely on specialized USPTO post-grant proceedings, including reissues, reexaminations and inter partes reviews (IPRs).
Our litigation team also draws upon deep experience litigating trademark, copyright, unfair competition, licensing, and trade secret issues — both as stand-alone legal claims and as elements of broader intellectual property or business disputes. Our attorneys apply these diverse legal theories across a broad range of industries, from online marketing and the latest digital and virtual technologies to established industries such as manufacturing and forest products.
We handle intellectual property disputes in courts across the country, and we also have experience leveraging alternative forums including domestic and international arbitrations, the Trademark Trial and Appeals Board, and industry self-regulatory review proceedings for false advertising. Our experience gives us the perspective to weave together a variety of legal claims and theories across multiple potential venues into a coordinated litigation strategy tailored to your business objectives.
