Patent & Technology Litigation
In today’s information-based economy, companies increasingly find themselves in court to defend or enforce their patent and technology rights, making it more important than ever to have experienced trial lawyers well versed in the intricacies of this area of law.
O’Melveny’s patent and technology litigators have the legal skills, technical knowledge and industry experience needed to help clients achieve their goals in the most demanding intellectual property disputes. For decades, we have prevailed in technology-intensive, must-win cases. One of the keys to our strong track record is our ability to explain the underlying technologies at issue to judges and juries. We litigate patent and technology matters in forums around the nation, both at the trial and appellate levels, including Section 337 proceedings before the International Trade Commission. We also coordinate and supervise parallel proceedings outside of the United States, to resolve patent and technology controversies that increasingly traverse countries and continents.
