Patent Litigation and Contested Patent Office Proceedings
Litigation of patent rights is complicated and, frequently, the stakes are high for both the patent owner and accused infringer. We have decades of experience in skillfully navigating the complexities of patent litigation and obtaining successful results for our clients in district courts, the U.S. International Trade Commission and the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
When a patent lawsuit is brought, or sometimes even before it is brought, accused infringers have increasingly initiated contested proceedings at the Patent Office, such as reexaminations, inter partes review, interferences and post-grant review, to have the patents declared invalid. We have decades of experience in skillfully handling these types of contested proceedings at the Patent Office and, if necessary, all the way through final hearing at the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.
