Our ITC Section 337 Litigation Services
ITC remedies are powerful – the ITC can issue orders barring all infringing imports from entry into the United States. And ITC investigations are fast – they typically conclude within 18 months, much quicker than most district court cases.
Given the high stakes and speed of ITC investigations, and the ITC’s unique procedural and substantive requirements, it is critically important for clients to engage counsel with deep knowledge of how the ITC operates. Likewise, given the nuances of IP law, and the complex technologies that may be at issue, it is equally important to retain counsel with the requisite legal and technical skills to rapidly and fully grasp the issues to be adjudicated.
Womble Bond Dickinson’s seasoned ITC team has litigated numerous cases before the ITC on behalf of both complainants and respondents, including violation and enforcement phase proceedings. Our attorneys have acted as lead counsel in ITC trials and in appeals to the Federal Circuit from ITC determinations. The team is bolstered by intellectual property litigators across the firm’s U.S. offices, with substantial trial experience, subject matter proficiency, and technical training across a wide variety of fields. Once ITC exclusion orders are issued, our attorneys also represent clients in compliance efforts before U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
