Litigation & Appeals

Whether enforcing patents or responding to patent threats, patent litigation matters require an aggressive attorney skilled both in patent law and in patent litigation (Representative Cases).

The battle to defend or to overcome a patent can take many years and requires many resources. Thus, the decision to litigate cannot be taken lightly, but requires both a business and legal strategy for success. Patent legal counsel should be involved early in the process to ensure that alternatives are explored and a sound decision is made.

Patent litigation and appeal calls for a team that is first able to understand and explain the technology involved within a vast array of industries. Then apply the patent law to aggressively present and argue the case effectively. Our patent attorneys are engineers well versed in many technologies and are experienced in strategic application of patent law.

When patent litigation cannot be avoided, it is prudent to consider three parameters in handling the case: (1) positioning for mediated resolution; (2) preparation for trial and (3) cost control.

Selecting the Right Patent Lawyer

In attorney selection, it is important to consider patent law experience, familiarity with Federal Circuit precedent, litigation experience, mediation, negotiation and licensing skills, hourly rates and lean staffing. Strategy should be practical but creative and based on experience in managing cases to satisfy multiple parameters.
