Intellectual Property Litigation

Intellectual property (IP) and technology are major sources of income for companies – and, also, frequent causes for litigation. Our experienced IP litigation team handles an array of IP disputes for market leaders, fast-growing startups and individual innovators across many industries and a broad range of technologies at the bargaining table and at trial. Our team assists clients as both plaintiffs and defendants in connection with claims of patent, trademark, trade dress, and copyright infringement, as well as unfair competition, false advertising, misappropriation of trade secrets and matters related to antitrust, data privacy and counterfeiting.

The IP litigation team brings together subject matter professionals that have advanced degrees and technical backgrounds in a variety of scientific and technical fields, including pharmaceuticals; medical devices; computer science; internet commerce; consumer electronics; telecommunications; automotive systems; healthcare; and many other general matters involving electrical, mechanical and chemical engineering, with experienced litigators that have a remarkable command of the courtroom. Our IP litigation team regularly represents clients in federal and state courts, at both the trial and appellate level, as well as before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the U.S. International Trade Commission, and the American Arbitration Association. Our IP litigators have extensive experience in the federal courts where IP disputes are most often litigated, including the Eastern District of Texas, the Eastern District of Virginia, the District of Delaware, the Northern District of California, and the District of New Jersey, where we have been consistently successful. Our IP litigation attorneys also serve both as advocates and as neutrals in alternative dispute resolution proceedings. Our IP litigators counsel clients through IP disputes in a vast number of industries, including:

  • Automotive
  • Biotechnology
  • Chemicals
  • Computer hardware and software
  • Consumer products
  • Electronics
  • Financial services
  • Healthcare
  • Information technology
  • Life sciences
  • Media and entertainment
  • Music
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Telecommunications.

Our IP team also conducts IP clearance, validity, infringement, and enforceability analyses for clients, including a thorough counseling on the nuances of IP procurement, product development, attorney-client privilege and attorney work product doctrines. We work with clients to achieve their business goals, meet legal needs and resolve their intellectual property disputes in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
