Patent Litigation

In patent litigation, as is the case with other kinds of trial law, the objective is to win. Litigation is almost always a last resort, entered into when other options have been exhausted. But should it be unavoidable, there is only one way to approach it. Rothwell Figg’s Patent Litigation attorneys are seasoned, strategic, and highly successful litigators who consistently go up against some of the biggest firms in the country in patent cases, and where it really counts – the courtroom – prevail.

How do we do it? First, we bring to every case an impressive team of attorneys who are both skilled in the law, and have deep technical expertise. Patent cases turn on what are usually complex, fact-intensive, and high-stakes scenarios. This is where we do our work, and where the technical knowledge of our lawyers makes a major difference. It enables us to master the material a case is based on, and get up to speed quickly. Most of our attorneys have either master’s degrees or doctorates in a technical field, including biotechnology and pharmaceuticals; electronics; telecommunications; computer hardware, software, and the Internet; semiconductors; and a wide variety of medical and mechanical specialties.

Many also have significant industry experience. Firsthand knowledge is a major asset when litigating a patent case, and also enables us to stay current on the latest technical and industry developments, all of which inure to our clients’ benefit. If a case gets to a jury, we are experts at communicating intricate technical topics in clear, simple language that persuades and informs.

We also operate as a true team, tight-knit and effective. Rather than depending on a few high-profile partners to litigate cases, we apply a group approach, building lean, highly experienced teams that communicate, work together seamlessly, share expertise in technical and legal disciplines, and most important of all, deliver results.

While we are focused on winning in court, we are not myopic. Our trial lawyers understand that each client and each situation has a different set of factors and a unique definition of victory. It may be a jury verdict, a reasonable settlement, impetus to negotiate, or something else. We are guided by that. However, whatever each client needs, they all also need clear, strategic, and consistent communication, something at which our patent litigation team excels.

We can litigate effectively and cost-effectively for a wide range of clients, from Fortune 50 multinationals to startups. Each case, each strategy, each client is treated as unique, because they are. We see patent litigation not just as a legal challenge. It’s also a business and strategic one. By integrating all three, we provide our clients with courtroom representation, even in the most complex disputes, that minimizes risk, maximizes opportunities, and most importantly, aggressively represents their interests where it really counts: court.
