Dickinson Wright’s Patent Litigation Practice Group has a successful record of handling patent enforcement and patent infringement litigation matters. We provide experienced counsel, resources, and resolve when it comes to guiding both patent owners and those accused of infringement toward the calculated resolution of patent enforcement, patent licensing, and patent litigation matters.

Litigation Skill and Experience

Our lawyers regularly litigate disputes before courts for both international and domestic entities. We manage all aspects of patent litigation, including related arbitration and alternative dispute resolution proceedings. We have argued patent cases in the U.S. district courts, the U.S. International Trade Commission, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and the Supreme Court of the United States.

Our firm’s patent litigation team has decades of experience representing and advising corporations in complex, high-stakes matters. We have handled disputes involving patent infringement, validity, enforceability, and ownership in forums throughout the country. Additionally, we are well-versed in helping our clients through inter partes review (IPR) proceedings before the PTAB.

Our lawyers have obtained all forms of relief for clients including injunctive relief, exclusion orders prohibiting the importation into the U.S. of products that infringe upon U.S. patents, and monetary damages. We strategize with our clients to determine the best course of action based on their business goals, which may include an early resolution, a negotiated settlement, a mediation, or a licensing arrangement, among other forms of agreement.

Patent Skill and Comprehensive Service

Our patent litigation team includes trial lawyers and patent technicians who provide comprehensive, efficient, and cost-effective representation. We handle utility patent, design patent, trade secrets, and patent ownership matters, among others. Combining technical knowledge, advocacy skill, and patent experience, we assess each case, identify the most effective arguments, and cogently present even the most complex technologies and legal issues in court.

Many of the firm’s patent litigators are registered to practice before the USPTO and have degrees in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, computer science, and aerospace engineering. Their technical backgrounds give us in-depth insight into our clients’ innovations and the highly scientific issues involved in their protection and exploitation.

From establishing pre-litigation strategies and risk avoidance techniques to alternative dispute resolution and aggressive litigation, we represent our clients through final resolution of each matter.

• Aircraft components

Helping Our Clients Achieve Their Goals

In every engagement, we look at their goals and best interests and work to come to the best resolution that will achieve the optimal outcome for them.
