Patent Litigation

We represent many of the country’s leading innovators—from life sciences and software companies to retail brands and major universities—in complex infringement matters in district courts nationwide, as well as in post-grant review proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) and on appeal to the Federal Circuit.

We advise both patent owners and accused infringers. And our litigators have served as lead trial counsel in cases involving technologies as diverse as DNA sequencing, lingerie, power meters, internet software and cloud computing systems, hemophilia therapies, pipe couplings, and ear warmers.

Our team litigates patent infringement and related antitrust and Hatch Waxman claims in the trial courts, but also on appeal to the Federal Circuit.

Collaboration is a hallmark of the firm. We boast a deep bench of experienced patent trial lawyers as well as patent prosecutors and agents who contribute the technical insight to help shape a winning litigation strategy.

Our patent lawyers hold undergraduate, masters, and doctoral degrees in physics, molecular biology, chemistry, computer science, electrical engineering, and other disciplines related to a variety of technologies. Many of our attorneys have worked in private industry at some of the world's largest pharmaceutical and software companies, and defense contractors.
