Practice Overview

Overview

Over the last twenty years, the number of patent infringement cases has risen steadily in the United States.  Part of the increase is due to the rising number of patents granted in this country, but an equal increase is due to the growing recognition that the assertion of patent rights, and defending against such assertion, is an important component in many business strategies.

Baker Donelson's intellectual property litigation attorneys have significant experience in patent infringement litigation and declaratory judgment actions.  Our intellectual property litigation attorneys have extensive knowledge and experience gained from regularly handling complex patent cases in the chemical, mechanical, electrical and business method industries, among others.  They also work closely with Baker Donelson's growing number of patent prosecutors, many of whom have advanced degrees in related scientific areas, to provide guidance regarding complex infringement and invalidity analysis at an early stage.  This preemptive approach enables clients to assess resolution and litigation options prior to the need to engage in protracted and costly litigation battles.

When litigation cannot be avoided or resolved, Baker Donelson's intellectual property litigation attorneys are well-versed in assertion and defense strategies.  They have extensive knowledge and hands-on experience gained from handling numerous patent infringement cases throughout the United States for a wide variety of clients, ranging from single inventors to Fortune 100 companies. Starting with the initial claim, our attorneys are equipped to guide clients throughout the process, including prosecuting or defending against temporary restraining orders or preliminary injunctions in district court cases, as well as initiating investigations with the International Trade Commission.
