Intellectual Property Litigation
At PV Law LLP, litigation is at the center of what we do. Our attorneys gained much of their experience in Big Law, working on international projects involving patents and other elements of intellectual property (IP).
The Big Picture
We bring a sophisticated, discerning eye to these matters, and our more than 100 combined years of experience means that we have familiarity with the myriad of details that are tied into any dispute or question involving IP.
We have substantial experience with U.S. patent litigation and dispute resolution, from inter partes review (IPR), discovery, claim construction, and summary judgment hearings to trial.
We know few cases go to trial in a district court, and our meticulous examination and planning allow us to frequently resolve disputes far in advance of a potential trial, controlling costs and providing effective, satisfying solutions for our clients.
Section 337 Proceedings
Our attorneys routinely appear before the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC). We are cognizant of the importance of these proceedings and the demands of Section 337 investigations before the ITC.
We have the technical expertise as well as the experience with these investigations to effectively counsel businesses looking to bring products to the U.S.
Our lawyers advise our clients of the potential for Section 337 investigations during our Freedom to Operate (FTO) analysis and explain potential options for this process.
District Court And Federal Circuit
We appear frequently in the federal District Courts in Delaware, Texas, Virginia, and California, where there is a constant churn of patent litigation. Our attorneys have represented both plaintiffs and defendants in appeals before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
Our sophistication with patent law allows us to advise clients when litigating a trade secret dispute in state court will better achieve their ends.
We recognize that in many instances, patent litigation will end in a licensing agreement. We keep that in mind throughout the proceedings, working to achieve the goals our clients desire in as cost-effective fashion as possible.
Because of our substantial litigation experience, we have drafted many licensing agreements involving patents. We know where problems develop, agreements break down, or disputes develop, and we strive to minimize the potential in clients’ agreements.
Our attorneys provide knowledgeable guidance when decision-makers and stakeholders need counsel on these sophisticated technologies that are often enmeshed in complex commercial deals and agreements against the background of global cultural relationships.
