When your intellectual property assets are under attack, you need Armstrong Teasdale. Our Intellectual Property (IP) Litigation practice group consists of trial attorneys with a proven track record in this unique area that combines evolving scientific technologies with the law.

We have successfully tried IP cases throughout the country.  Our IP litigation team has won defense and plaintiffs’ verdicts in multimillion-dollar cases in some of the country’s toughest venues, including in Delaware, Texas, Virginia and California. Our lawyers also take pride in achieving success by resolving cases short of trial, either through settlement, licensing, summary judgment or dismissal. In addition to having collectively handled IP cases in most of the states in the country, our IP litigators have significant experience before the Court of Federal Claims and the adjudicatory bodies of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), including the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) and the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB).

This vast experience provides our IP litigators with the insight and tools needed to win IP cases, regardless of their size and complexity. We assess the potential risks and rewards of fighting IP lawsuits, and provide creative strategies and solutions to our clients across a wide range of industries. These creative solutions include strategic use of cost-effective post-grant proceedings at the PTAB. Armstrong Teasdale has a robust PTAB practice led by established patent attorneys with extensive experience leveraging these proceedings—as an alternative to, or in parallel with, district court litigation—to achieve our clients’ goals.

For every case, we create dynamic and efficient teams of our skilled trial lawyers, technically trained patent attorneys and other IP professionals. We have over 55 patent attorneys and agents registered to practice before the USPTO, many of whom have industry experience and advanced degrees, including Ph.D.s, in fields such as electrical, computer, mechanical, aerospace, chemical, biochemical and biotechnical engineering. Our IP litigation team harnesses this valuable experience in crafting and executing winning strategies. At every stage of a case, we remain singularly focused on achieving our clients’ objective.
