Intellectual Property

The Intellectual Property Group has a winning track record for the enforcement and defense of patent, trademark, copyright and trade secrets claims in trials, arbitrations and appeals nationwide.

Our top-ranked IP litigators have significant experience in complex, high-profile patent, trademark and copyright litigation. We bring powerful advocacy, creative solutions, and a committed, experienced team to every case, and we consistently achieve precedent-setting results in matters involving substantial damage claims.

We also frequently counsel clients in the execution of worldwide intellectual property development, acquisition, protection, enforcement, branding and licensing programs for patents, trademarks, trade dress and copyrighted works.

Our attorneys have expertise in a wide range of industries, including telecommunications, automotive, aerospace, computer hardware and software, electronics, semiconductors and fabrication, specialty chemicals, footwear and apparel, food and beverage, life sciences and pharmaceutical, new media and internet technologies, medical devices, toys and entertainment, online games and apps, and more.
