Our Intellectual Property practice consists of many interrelated parts including patent prosecution, validity, patent infringement defense and enforcement; trademark registration, opposition, cancellation, trademark infringement defense and enforcement; copyright prosecution, copyright infringement defense and enforcement. Our lawyers routinely address questions of misuse, design-around issues, and licensing potential, and are experienced in all aspects of the Lanham Act, which governs the law of U.S. trademarks.

Our trial lawyers represent clients before the U.S. federal courts, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) (formerly, the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences), the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, and the International Trade Commission in matters involving infringement, licensing, technology transfer, trademark oppositions and cancellations, patent re-issuances, patent re-examinations, deceptive and unfair trade practices, and false advertising.
