Our Intellectual Property Litigation Attorney Services
We represent companies in asserting claims against infringers and also in defending against claims of intellectual property infringement. Our broad litigation experience includes assertions of patent infringement, copyright infringement, trademark infringement, misappropriation of trade secrets, and related antitrust or unfair competition claims.
Our IP Litigation team is comprised of more than 30 full-time IP litigation attorneys. This litigation team is situated within WBD’s broad-based Intellectual Property practice, which includes more than 120 attorneys and approximately 20 patent agents and technical advisors. Our professionals have deep experience in the electrical, chemical, pharmaceutical, computer software, mechanical and electromechanical arts. More than 100 are USPTO registered practitioners (including attorneys and agents).
Our attorneys handle complex intellectual property cases in state and federal courts throughout the country, and before the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC). During the past ten years (2012-2021), WBD attorneys have handled over 650 intellectual property cases in 51 federal district courts. Our team is comprised of trial-tested litigators, including many with first chair experience in high profile cases. We have handled multiple appeals before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, other federal and state appellate courts, and the Supreme Court of the United States. WBD attorneys also regularly litigate before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Our practice includes strong IP litigation teams in Delaware, California and Texas, three of the busiest patent litigation venues in the United States.
