Our nationally ranked, full-service practice advises clients on all aspects of IP issues, from safeguarding innovations to negotiating strategic agreements and litigating claims. Whether a single transaction or a complex, multiparty agreement, we focus on helping clients create and preserve the value of their IP.

We address IP issues within the context of the client’s business strategies and needs. Our lawyers recognize that needs and business objectives vary from client to client and that the IP strategy we employ for a Fortune 500 company may not apply to a startup seeking venture capital. That is why our group places a high premium on well-developed client relationships and the knowledge these relationships deliver.

Our extensive knowledge of patent and trademark law combined with the deep experience of the firm’s civil litigators and business lawyers positions us to offer clients the right mix of legal skill and business acumen to handle all IP matters, regardless the size and complexity of the matter or transaction. We regularly call upon a network of highly skilled associate intellectual property professionals throughout the world to field global client service teams.
