Patent Litigation

Patent litigation has undergone major changes in recent years, largely due to the landmark Leahy-Smith America Invents Act (AIA). Taft’s Patent Litigation attorneys understand the complexities and unique dynamics created by this legislation.

Taft has experienced patent litigators to initiate and defend patent infringement lawsuits anywhere within the United States. We have litigated complex proceedings such as post-grant review (PGR), inter partes review (IPR) and covered business method (CBM).

Taft's nationwide intellectual property practice has recently litigated cases in California, Virginia (The "Rocket Docket"), Kentucky, New York, New Jersey, Illinois, Rhode Island, Delaware, Texas, Indiana and Ohio, representing companies located in Japan, Canada, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, California and Connecticut, among others.
