Our team of more than 100 IP litigators brings trial-tested experience to matters ranging from cutting-edge pharmaceutical and technology patent disputes to the copyright, trademark, and trade secrets cases that reshape industries. We can tailor our teams to match our specific capabilities with each client’s specific needs — no matter the IP at issue. We can also address any combination of IP and related antitrust, contract, and unfair business practices claims.

Adversaries know our track record of winning the most complex and high-profile IP matters across the spectrum of district courts and the Federal Circuit, as well as at the International Trade Commission (ITC) and Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB). We regularly take over high-stakes cross-border IP cases from other firms on the eve of trial and secure trial victories for clients who previously faced long odds. And we bring an innovative and winning approach to fast-moving PTAB proceedings, drawing on our experience securing patent victories at trial and through appeals. Our appearance on the docket signals to opposing counsel that our client intends to win the fight.
