Intellectual Property and Technology
We handle intellectual property and technology related disputes for some of the world’s leading companies and inventors. Our attorneys have experience representing clients in such matters before state and federal trial courts, the Internal Trade Commission, the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and the United States Supreme Court.
The types of intellectual property matters our attorneys have handled include patent, trademark, copyright, and trade secret disputes. Our experience runs the gamut from representing a Fortune 500 computer and software company appealing a denial of a reissue patent on its data-transfer technology to defending a rock star against allegations of copyright infringement.
Our attorneys have the acumen to understand complex technologies. We find, however, that our success in IP matters results from the advocacy skills we bring to table, so we often collaborate with a client's in-house or outside IP counsel or other technical specialists while remaining focused on shaping stories and crafting legal arguments that resonate with judges and juries.
We also advise hedge funds, private equity firms, and other businesses considering investments in companies or industries likely to be impacted by challenges to intellectual property assets. Similarly, we advise business or individuals seeking to understand the landscape of any intellectual property litigation in which they are involved or in which they may be contemplating getting involved.
