Intellectual Property Right assertions are a multi-billion dollar industry in the U.S. and even greater world-wide. Our Litigation Group members are frequently brought into litigation matters to offer the strategic support that our backgrounds as technologists provide. We pride ourselves on our ability to bridge the oftentimes different perspectives of and languages used by lawyers and courts, on the one hand, and inventors and clients, on the other hand.
Our Litigation Group typically works in tandem with lead litigation counsel to provide strategic support, including: asserting or defending against post-grant challenges (e.g., IPR’s); claim construction development, including Markman briefing and hearings; expert witnesses discovery, including report drafting and depositions; infringement analysis for both patent assertions and defensive analysis; and developing defenses, such as prior art searching, and invalidity and non-infringement contentions. We have supported many of the nation’s preeminent patent litigation law firms and frequently are brought in time and again for additional matters.
