Intellectual Property

Schiff Hardin offers substantial experience and strength in handling intellectual property litigation, among other major areas of the law. More than 50 Schiff Hardin attorneys practice in the field of intellectual property law, in offices across the country. We provide a broad range of litigation, counseling, and transactional services involving patents, trademarks, trade dress, trade secrets, copyrights, franchising, licensing and electronic commerce of all types.

Our intellectual property clients include some of the best-known names in the United States and abroad. These include manufacturers, retailers, sports celebrities, engineering firms, financial exchanges, universities, research laboratories, generic pharmaceutical companies, distributors, e-businesses, licensors and franchisors.

Schiff Hardin attorneys have prevailed for our clients in precedent-setting patent, trademark, and trade secret cases. We are on the cutting edge of intellectual property law outside the courtroom as well, leading in the creation of Internet-based securities trading businesses, Internet banks and other e-commerce related enterprises, and high-technology patent prosecution. We also have extensive capabilities with respect to advertising law-related matters and issues.

Twelve of our attorneys were named to the 2014 Law Bulletin Publishing Company's Illinois Leading Lawyers Network for Intellectual Property or Franchise and Dealership Law.
