We have a large team solely dedicated to IP litigation, and it’s reflected in our clients’ numerous successes. Our team encompasses patent lawyers, trademark lawyers and experienced trial lawyers who handle cases before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and in federal courts, as well as state venues, foreign jurisdictions and arbitration panels.

We represent clients in every variety of IP litigation matters, including:

  • Patent, trademark and copyright infringement
  • Trade secret misappropriation
  • Internet, social media and domain name disputes
  • Post-grant proceedings and trademark oppositions
  • International Trade Commission Section 337 actions
  • Technology transactions

Our IP litigation team members know the science and technology involved in these matters, and we know how to explain complicated topics to judges and juries for the greatest benefit to our clients. Many of our skilled trial lawyers also have technical backgrounds, either as licensed patent attorneys or with experience working at the USPTO and as engineers or in-house counsel at leading technology companies.
