Womble Bond Dickinson’s Intellectual Property Litigation Team helps clients defend and prosecute their valuable intellectual property interests across all fields including patent, trademark, trade dress and copyright infringement, unfair competition, false advertising, and trade secret misappropriation.
Our philosophy is simple and collaborative: Gain a thorough understanding of our client’s legal and business objectives at the outset of the case, and then work with the client to design and employ a strategy that can achieve those objectives through the legal process in the most efficient manner possible.
Our attorneys have tried complex intellectual property cases in state and federal courts throughout the country, and we have handled multiple appeals of those cases before the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, other circuit courts of appeal, and the United States Supreme Court. In addition, team members counsel clients in appearances before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and other agencies in:
- Patent interferences;
- Post-grant review proceedings/inter partes reviews;
- Trademark oppositions and cancellations; and
- Section 337 actions before the U.S. International Trade Commission.
Our intellectual property clients range from start-up ventures to Fortune 500 corporations, in such areas as biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, telecommunications, technology, software, manufacturing, agriculture and others.
We welcome the opportunity to speak with you about how we can serve your intellectual property litigation needs to advance your business goals.
