Litigation
With many cases spanning the globe, our attorneys have accumulated notable victories and other accomplishments, including the first-ever patent infringement case commenced by a Chinese company in the United States. Our attorneys have deep litigation experience, involving a wide variety of technological disciplines. We have litigated patent cases involving consumer products; complex electronics such as flash drives, power tools, cameras, ground fault circuit interrupters, computers and software; scientific instruments; chemical compositions; pharmaceuticals and medical devices. We also have substantial litigation experience with registered and common law trademarks; trade dress including packaging, product and store designs; and copyrights in numerous areas such as children’s toys, sculptures, apparel and textile designs.

We have a wealth of courtroom experience, ranging from preliminary injunctions, to discovery issues, to patent Markman hearings, to many jury and bench trials, to appeals to the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals and regional Circuit Courts. Our IP litigators are complemented by our large and experienced general litigation practice.

Licensing and Other Transactions
We have substantial experience in patent and trademark licensing and transactional work involving many industries.

Our experience in IP agreements includes licenses, securitizations and acquisitions, among other things. With such familiarity of IP-related agreements, we know that a winning IP agreement, no matter what the technology or type of agreement, starts with skilled negotiation and concludes with attention to every detail in the written instrument.

Strategic Planning and Counseling

We help you identify issues and opportunities, reduce risk, generate efficiencies and improve the bottom line.
