From patents to trademarks, copyrights to licensing, defamation, technology transfers to opinion work and due diligence, our lawyers have the background and experience to protect clients’ most valuable assets in today’s competitive market. Our professionals have advanced degrees (e.g. Ph.D.s) in a variety of technologies, including the chemical, biotech, electrical and mechanical areas, and understand the complex inventions and ideas for which they advocate. They guard those innovations using a number of different strategies best suited for each client’s business application, including:
- Intellectual Property Litigation

We frequently manage not only a team of lawyers working together in our firm, but also coordinate carefully with inventors and other client representatives. As one of our core values, we believe teamwork is key to achieving optimal results and as such, our lawyers work seamlessly across Armstrong Teasdale’s global network, which includes lawyers with experience in other areas such as technology licensing, international law and M&A, to name a few. This holistic approach enables our lawyers to provide guidance on the broader implications of our clients’ IP matters.
