As part of our Patents practice, we provide patent infringement defense services.

Patent Infringement Defense

We understand that patent infringement defense is a serious concern and can be costly and taxing on business operations.  Therefore, our patent litigation attorneys work with clients to find the best options possible. Sometimes, that could mean settlement negotiations to avoid litigation or taking a case to trial to invalidate the patent claims asserted. We defend against the patent infringement allegations through:

  • Trial in Federal Court

  • Challenges in the US Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO), Patent Trial & Appeal Board (PTAB)

  • Cease and Desist Efforts

  • Settlement Negotiations

Patent Infringement Defense Attorneys

We have the technical experience in addition to trial skills and industry knowledge for patent infringement defense in court or with the USPTO — although clients often desire resolution of patent infringement allegations outside of trial. We also have experience in various forms of dispute resolution to defend against patent infringement allegations. We work with clients to find resolution in a manner that best suits their business needs.
