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.

We have represented clients in industries, including:

  • Biotechnology
  • Chemical
  • Computer hardware and software
  • Consumer products
  • Electronics and telecommunications
  • Energy
  • Fashion and apparel
  • Medical technology
  • Pharmaceuticals
We handle highly complex and strategic cases against our clients' competitors involving some of their most important products and services. We also continuously handle patent troll cases in the Eastern District of Texas, the District of Delaware, and numerous other jurisdictions. We have opposed many of the most-active NPEs—including Tangelo IP, GeoTag, Atlas IP, CryptoPeak, and Olivistar—and we have represented both software developers and licensee users in matters with broad strategic and risk implications. We know that each case is different and how to manage them in a way that is both cost-effective and yields the best possible outcome.

Although our attorneys have litigated numerous intellectual property matters in the courts, the PTAB, and before arbitration tribunals, we also are frequently asked to resolve matters privately. We understand the risks and rewards of intellectual property disputes for companies, universities, and research institutions and have achieved significant positive results for clients with minimal expense and publicity.
