Intellectual Property, Patent, Trademark and Copyright Litigation

Strength and agility in exploiting, protecting and enforcing intellectual property rights is business-critical. Our deep bench of  first-chair trial lawyers and technical specialists work to defend our clients’ IP interests through: 

  • patent litigation before U.S. District Courts, including the Eastern District of Texas, the District of Delaware, and the Central and Northern Districts of California
  • appellate courts and the International Trade Commission (ITC)
  • trademark and false advertising litigation and trademark prosecutions
  • Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) and Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) proceedings
  • digital & other media litigation, including leading-edge music and copyright matters
  • Post-Grant proceedings, inter-partes review, reexaminations, oppositions
  • ITC Section 337 investigations
  • international arbitration decisions under the LCIA, ICC, ICDR, CAM Santiago, UNCITRAL and WIPO 

Our IP litigators have handled hundreds of complex litigation matters across a wide range of industries and technologies from pharmaceutical, biotech, and medical technology to networking, telecommunications, and computer systems.

Our patent trial lawyers are extremely capable in obtaining the best results for our clients and are not afraid to litigate in the most complicated of cases. For many clients, the at-risk product revenues were in the billions of dollars per case. 

Our litigation teams are integrated to include, where appropriate, appellate practitioners before, during and after trial to ensure the best record and the best results for the client. 

In trademark and copyright litigation, our lawyers have represented clients in trials and preliminary injunction hearing, practiced in federal courts, the USPTO, TTAB and ITC, and participated in ICANN domain name arbitrations. 

Our music, media and entertainment practice is right at the cutting edge of digital media and traditional media. We represent major players in both sectors in court including copyright infringement and antitrust/rate-setting claims in cases involving the distribution of audio and audiovisual content, and in licensing and media distribution matters. 

The majority of the team’s lawyers, agents and advisors hold technical degrees, with many having industry experience as well.
