With 100+ lawyers, the intellectual property team at Crowell & Moring is recognized by leading industry publications Chambers USA, Chambers Europe, U.S. News & World Report Best Law Firms, Managing Intellectual Property magazine’s IP Stars, and Patexia as among the top intellectual property practitioners in the field. Our experience, coupled with our commitment to client service, has attracted Fortune 100 and other top corporations whose brands are household names and whose products lead the way in technological innovation.

Our IP litigators are trial lawyers first and foremost, experienced and respected in every forum where patent, trademark, copyright, and trade secrets are contested. The team’s lawyers have appeared before state and federal trial and appellate courts, the International Trade Commission, the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, and arbitration tribunals. 

We help clients enforce and defend their intellectual property.  Our experienced, assertive, and creative litigators are adept at handling both offensive and defensive cases. Clients turn to us in bet-the-company litigation to enjoin competitors that have copied their brands or patented inventions. We have also defeated baseless preliminary injunction motions in district court and on appeal, ensuring clients can launch their products without any restriction.    

With the resources and economies of a full-service law firm and a seasoned group of IP litigators, we help businesses prevent and resolve disputes quickly and favorably.  Our guiding principle in litigation is to keep it simple and efficient.  The legal principles may be complex, but to succeed, trial themes need to be clear and persuasive and developed early in the case. Discovery needs to be strategic and purposeful.  By focusing on our client’s objectives, we are able to keep litigation costs down while, at the same time, achieving success.
