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, LED lighting products, 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.
Post Grant Review Proceedings
We are experienced in litigating post grant review proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. Our IP attorneys have broad-based experience litigating patent matters and strong technical backgrounds in electrical, mechanical and medical device technologies. We have acted as lead counsel in Inter Partes Reviews of patents covering LED packages and semiconductor chips, consumer packaging, and computer software and hardware.
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
Our attorneys have extensive experience in IP counseling. We know that intellectual property is worthless without a strategy, and therefore we make certain your IP strategies fit within your overall business objectives. We help you identify issues and opportunities, reduce risk, generate efficiencies and improve the bottom line.
We ensure that your business needs are met by skilled and experienced patent attorneys. We focus on particular industries including pharmaceuticals, chemicals, materials, consumer electronics, tools, life sciences, and scientific instruments. We often seek worldwide protection of inventions, and work closely with you to provide appropriate and comprehensive protection for your business strategies. We also offer services in patent appeals, re-examinations, reissues and other administrative proceedings.
Our attorneys provide comprehensive trademark solutions. Trademarks can be the most valuable assets a company can own, yet they are commonly overlooked or undervalued. We work with some of the best known brands across a broad range of industries from apparel to pharmaceuticals. We offer an international trademark practice to ensure your brands are protected wherever you are doing business.
We have decades of experience in counseling on the registration, enforcement and licensing of copyrights. Our attorneys excel at handling all types of copyright matters and have obtained substantial recoveries. We also have expertise in defending against claims of infringement.
