Our IP Litigation Group defends the intellectual property rights of domestic and foreign consumer product, hospitality and entertainment, media, high-tech and life sciences clients, publicly traded multinational corporations and startup ventures. The Group represents clients in trademark, unfair competition, false advertising, copyright, trade secret, patent, antitrust, product liability, and related disputes in the federal and state courts, before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the International Trade Commission, and via alternative avenues of dispute resolution such as arbitration under the ICANN Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy and proceedings before the National Advertising Division (NAD).

Our litigators also proactively counsel clients on litigation risk management, pre-litigation analysis and assessment and negotiated dispute resolution before arbitrators and mediators across the country. We have handled patent litigation matters representing both patent owners and defendants, including a number of matters defending against patent assertion companies. Additionally, one of our litigators has served as an expert witness on patent issues in an arbitration involving underlying patent litigation.
