Intellectual Property Litigation

Patent Litigation

Our experience in patent litigation runs from semiconductor wafers to email encryption software to atomic force microscopes. Clients seek out our patent litigators for their leadership in identifying innovative strategies for defending against and prosecuting patent infringement actions.

We have successfully litigated patent infringement actions all over the nation, from Washington D.C. to Washington State. We are known for our particular experience with the special Northern District of California Local Rules that govern patent cases litigated in that jurisdiction, and our attorneys regularly give presentations and author articles on the practical and strategic issues arising from those Rules. We are intimately familiar with every aspect of patent infringement disputes, including pre-lawsuit investigations, jurisdictional disputes, claims construction (Markman) hearings, summary judgment proceedings, jury and bench trials, invalidity and unenforceability issues, strategic use of expert witnesses, damages analysis, and appellate advocacy before the United States Federal Circuit Court of Appeals.
