Professionals >

Our antitrust and competition law lawyers have extensive legal experience with technology-driven issues, including the overlap among technology, intellectual property, and competition issues, across the United States, Europe, and other international arenas. We routinely counsel major corporate clients on issues of bilateral patent licensing, and on cutting-edge issues of competitor collaborations involving intellectual property, in the context of multi-lateral licensing and standards setting. In addition, on a daily basis we both counsel clients and litigate antitrust and IP claims in federal courts, with respect to issues such as Walker Process claims based on fraud on the United States Patent and Trademark Office and sham litigation challenges to Noerr-Pennington protection.

Our deep bench in this focus area is the result of years of hands-on experience with the specific legal and business issues raised by the acquisition, licensing and use of intellectual property rights. We have the experience and knowledge required to integrate technical considerations into our legal analysis, and to understand the high-level competition and intellectual property concerns that tend to drive outcomes where, as here, the law often is more frequently made through formal and informal guidance than through litigated cases.
