Brown Rudnick’s IP litigators are focused on achieving clients’ business goals and objectives by obtaining the best possible outcome whether by taking a case to trial or by resolving a dispute through licensing or settlement. Cases are staffed with a first-chair lawyer from the beginning and are managed by attorneys with strong technical backgrounds. We have a deep team of patent practitioners in a variety of disciplines, which enables us to run our cases cost-effectively, without the constant need for outside technical support.

We have litigated in the busiest patent district courts across the country, as well as the Federal Circuit, International Trade Commission and Patent Trial and Appeal Board, where we have petitioned for and opposed more than 100 inter partes reviews and covered business method patent proceedings.
