Excellence in trial and litigation skills and broad technical know-how are the hallmarks of our U.S. patent litigation practice. Our patent litigation specialists consider themselves trial lawyers first and foremost, and pride themselves on the ability to convey even the most technical subject matter in ways that strike a chord with lay jurors and judges. We never shy away from taking a case all the way to trial, yet we recognize that often it is in a client’s best interest to dispose of disputes more expeditiously. Indeed, since cases are often effectively won or lost at the claim construction stage, our experienced litigators bring the full force of their trial experience to bear on "Markman" claim construction hearings. In addition to trial work in federal district courts, the U.S. International Trade Commission, and the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, our attorneys frequently argue appeals before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

From pre-litigation investigations through trial and appeal, our attorneys work with our clients to attain the best result and meet the client's business objectives.  Many of our patent litigators have substantial technical knowledge garnered both from academic and real-world experiences, enabling them to understand not only the technology at issue in any given case, but just as importantly, how that technology fits into a client's business strategies. Where additional technical skill is desirable, our litigators can draw on the diverse talents and experiences of our many patent procurement specialists. Crowell & Moring is ranked among the leading patent procurement firms in the country. This combination of litigation and patent procurement experience also makes us particularly effective in handling interferences, inter partes reviews, ex parte reexaminations, and other administrative litigation proceedings before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
