Dickinson Wright Named As a Top U.S. Firm in Patent Litigation

DETROIT, MICHIGAN - In a survey conducted by IP Worldwide in 2001, Dickinson Wright was among the top law firms selected by the world's largest companies to represent them in U.S. patent disputes.

The firm's attorneys often find ways to leverage favorable settlements and are aggressive in seeking summary dispositions in the early stages of litigation." Sulzer adds, "When a case must be tried, Dickinson Wright's trial specialists bring almost 70 years of successful jury trial experience to bear on patent litigation matters." Dickinson Wright's attorneys possess expertise in all facets of patent litigation, including related antitrust matters and license disputes in domestic and international commerce. "Our experience crosses all boundaries: federal courts across the country, including the Federal Circuit and the Court of Federal Claims, the U.S. International Trade Commission, and all forms of alternative dispute resolution," said Sulzer. Dickinson Wright PLLC is a full service law firm with five offices in Michigan and one in Washington, D.C., with nearly 200 attorneys practicing in more than 35 specialty areas.
