We represent both plaintiffs and defendants when enforcing invalidity and infringement actions in the U.S. and overseas, having won important rulings before the USPTO, ITC, and all court levels, including state and federal appellate courts, U.S. Court of Appeals, and the Supreme Court. Many of our IP attorneys and staff hold scientific and engineering degrees in virtually every technical discipline, allowing us to effectively collaborate with peers and clients, who truly understand the discipline and speak the language.

Our comprehensive understanding of technology and law gives us a distinct competitive advantage. Our team includes former engineers, scientists, patent examiners, and federal law clerks, who can quickly grasp the legal, business, and technology issues required to successfully manage some of the most complicated IP portfolios. Consequently, we are frequently recognized by in-house counsel, independent ranking services, and many well-known brands as IP thought leaders and their top choice for counsel.
