Patent Litigation & Dispute Resolution
Obtaining a patent is a journey, and in many instances, it is only the beginning of that journey. Once a patent application has been drafted, filed, examined, and issued, the fight to preserve those newly acquired rights continues for the life of the patent, which can be as long as twenty years or more. Unfortunately, infringement does happen and often requires legal action. When infringement does take place, our clients must be vigilant in enforcing those rights. AdamsIP understands that patent litigation is a business problem as well as a legal issue. We strive to understand our clients’ businesses and priorities so that we can serve their long-term goals and short-term needs.
Though patents have a presumption of validity once granted, they are routinely challenged in court or through the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) via the inter partes review (IPR) process. Our team has experience handling patent litigation in venues across the United States, as well as handling Patent Trial and Appeal Board proceedings before the USPTO.
Our legal team routinely defends and enforces our clients’ intellectual property rights, from presuit license strategies through every stage of litigation. In the process, we learn our clients’ technology and industry trends so that we can anticipate problems and get up to speed quickly. We draw on our industry knowledge to assess clients’ litigation needs and solve problems efficiently. By focusing on practical solutions to our client’s problems and actively working to steer the litigation to best meet our clients’ needs, we build inherent value through our litigation strategies.
Our legal team is experienced in rendering freedom-to-operate and infringement opinions, performing patentability and landscape searches, and litigating patents at every level. Whether you are a large, medium, or small business, we have the expertise, experience, and tools to guide you to a successful resolution.
