Our patent litigation team across the US and in London handles major litigation for some of the largest companies in the world and helps protect some of the most valuable intellectual property. These clients rely on us to enforce and defend patents for their core technologies, and to protect their businesses from accusations of patent infringement by others. Our highly-skilled and seasoned litigators have technological and engineering backgrounds and experience litigating in numerous fields, including consumer electronics, wireless technologies, telecommunications, IT, computers, fiber optic and communications equipment, the Internet, semiconductors, software, business method patents, chemicals, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and biotechnology products.
Our patent litigators have appeared in courts through the country. We are presently representing clients in cases pending in California, Texas and Delaware, and have appeared in Oregon, Washington State, Alabama, New York, Virginia and others. We handle all phases of these complex disputes, including early investigations, litigation before the trial court and jury, and appeal. We have also assisted clients in patent litigation in the UK, and EU courts at the trial and appellate levels, and before agencies such as the International Trade Commission.
While we have had many "smaller" cases, the majority of our patent litigation practices involves very large, very complex cases. Such cases usually involve multiple patents, multiple parties and sometimes multiple jurisdictions. We have represented clients against parties who seek to enforce patents solely for the monetary value they can obtain from doing so, but we have also represented clients in large-scale, wide ranging business disputes among competitors, where the assertion of patent rights seeks to effect a party's standing in the market.
Our clients also rely on us to procure patents in these technology areas; provide due diligence review of patent validity, infringement, and enforceability; assist with technology development, licensing, and acquisition transactions; and provide sophisticated advice and opinions concerning strategic patent issues and structure and negotiate agreements involving patented technologies.
