Our litigators have successfully asserted and defended patent cases in federal courts throughout the country, including jurisdictions with heavy patent dockets (e.g., California, Delaware, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia), the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and before the International Trade Commission. Foremost, we are trial lawyers, and our diverse IP litigation practice enables us to excel across a wide range of technologies. Our approach is to pair lawyers who have strong technical backgrounds in the relevant technology with experienced trial lawyers, thereby giving our clients the best of both worlds: a litigation and trial team which can construct the strongest possible technical arguments in support of our position and can also explain our case to a judge and jury in language which is simple and persuasive.
From individual inventors to Fortune 500 companies, our lawyers have represented a wide range of clients in patent matters and have successfully litigated against some of the largest law firms in the U.S. The firm’s patent practice has been recognized in the Chambers USA guide, and the firm has been ranked as a recommended firm for patent litigation by Managing Intellectual Property magazine’s IP Stars guide. Patent Litigation group members have also been recognized individually by Chambers, as IP stars by Managing Intellectual Property, and as part of IAM’s Patent 1000 list.
Our patent attorneys are also skillful and experienced negotiators, able to assist our clients in maximizing the value of an IP asset sale. We draft infringement and validity opinions, conduct detailed intellectual property due diligence and freedom-to-operate analyses, and counsel clients on monetizing strategies for patent portfolios.
