Our patent litigation practice weds technologists with trial attorneys. For over 40 years—with the creation of the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals—a dedicated group of Schiff Hardin attorneys has represented patentees, accused infringers, inventors and third parties in matters involving patents.
Today, our team of more than 25 attorneys and technology professionals practices patent strategy and counseling in virtually every technology area. We work in a wide range of industries—electronics, computerized and technical products, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, Internet/e-commerce, communications and household goods, to name a few. Our Hatch-Waxman and Biosimilars practice is regarded as one of the best in the world.
From our seven offices across the U.S., we protect our clients’ most valuable IP business assets regardless of where the case is or who is on the other side.
We are proud of our victories, whether they are record-setting verdicts, valuable injunctions, early resolutions before matters are filed, or successful motions to dismiss. Our Patent Litigation team has recorded wins on motions, in trial, and before the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeal Board.
We are motivated by successes large and small. We have been at the forefront of precedent-setting cases, including those on Section 101 patentability. We have worked as close adjuncts to in-house counsel in day-to-day counselling on litigation management and avoidance.
Value and Velocity
We understand that not every case needs to go to trial. We understand that not every case requires a stable of Nobel-prize winning experts. We work up a matter based on where it fits a client’s business objectives.
We litigate with a comprehensive understanding of our clients’ business needs and implement strategies that are tailored to achieve their goals. We manage cases in a way that is most effective and economical for the big picture, whether in hard-nosed litigation or quick and efficient dispute resolution before an issue matures to litigation.
Bottom line: our clients count on us and we deliver.
