what we do / IP Litigation

smart ideas need shatterproof protection
overview

When your company’s intellectual property has been copied or stolen or you have been accused of infringement, you need the Tucker Ellis IP Litigation Group.

Unlike many IP law firms, the Tucker Ellis IP Litigation Group tries cases for both plaintiffs and defendants across the United States – in key venues on the East and West coasts and many courts in between. Our trial lawyers have won complex patent, trademark, copyright, and trade secret cases throughout the country and have an unrivaled track record of recovering our clients’ attorney fees.

Moreover, we are keenly aware of our clients’ competitive and fiscal goals when facing risky IP lawsuits. In addition to those cases we take to trial, we often resolve cases short of trial, through summary judgment or other motion practice or through a favorable settlement.

Our ranks include registered patent attorneys in virtually every technical discipline, a former assistant prosecutor and FBI agent, Fellows of the American College of Trial Lawyers, and former federal law clerks. Our unique trial capabilities are rooted in lawyers with decades of trial and appellate experience and an unequaled in-house trial training program – the Tucker Ellis Litigation Institute – for our developing lawyers. We handle cases in federal and state courts around the country, as well as cases and other administrative proceedings in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and the International Trade Commission.

We successfully represent clients ranging in size from some of the largest corporations to newly emerging companies in nearly every industry and technical field. Regardless of size, our focus is always on meeting our clients’ goals. We build dynamic and efficient trial teams, utilizing the firm’s best resources, from experienced trial lawyers and technically skilled patent attorneys to other IP professionals.

Tucker Ellis has one of the best trial practices in the country with a proven record of success against the most formidable law firms. Our IP Litigation Group will protect your company’s interests at all costs and achieve the best results possible in your next intellectual property dispute.
