Sidley’s Patent Litigation practice has grown along with our clients’ increasingly vital intellectual property needs and assets, enabling us to provide the focused experience of a boutique with the broad-based resources of one of the world’s largest, full-service law firms. Sidley now has over 100 lawyers actively involved in patent litigation. Our Intellectual Property practice and, in particular, our Patent Litigation practice have been consistently ranked among the top in the country.
Recognizing that patent litigation often takes place at the level of “bet the company” cases, we provide the trial and appellate experience, technological knowledge and resources necessary to fulfill our clients’ objectives. Sidley’s impressive resume of patent litigation victories demonstrates that our lawyers focus their experience and energy on maximizing our clients’ odds of success. Our patent trial lawyers have successfully represented clients to verdict in some of the most hotly contested patent cases in federal courts nationwide.
These cases often focus on the technological and scientific discoveries that drive the global economy and are some of the most challenging in the law. We have litigated patent disputes across a wide range of technologies, including such complex areas as microprocessors and computer systems, computer memories, programmable logic devices, semiconductor manufacturing and equipment, medical devices, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals (including Hatch-Waxman cases), chemical compositions, industrial machinery, navigation systems, software, telecommunications, display systems, gaming, video games, soft modems and consumer electronics. In handling technology cases, we meld the talents of experienced trial lawyers with technical professionals who can effectively prepare the case on the technical merits.
