Clients know WilmerHale as one of the top firms for patent litigation. We have helped companies protect their IP in jurisdictions across the US and internationally, including the International Trade Commission, the Federal Circuit, the Supreme Court and all courts at the district level. We have successfully grown our reputation as a formidable presence by delivering trial and appellate victories to a diverse client base, and by playing a major role in shaping intellectual property law, including in newer areas such as inter partes review and other post-grant proceedings.
Our patent litigation team takes a unique multidisciplinary approach to staffing cases: each is handled by both skilled litigators and lawyers with deep technical knowledge, who also work efficiently with colleagues across practices to achieve results for clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies to startups. Because we have more than 120 lawyers with scientific and technical backgrounds, these clients also trust us to truly understand their innovations and the business concerns related to their patents.
Our more than 300 general IP, IP litigation and appellate lawyers have prevailed in notable fights for major players in technology, pharmaceuticals and other industries. This breadth of experience has garnered accolades from across the spectrum of legal-industry publications: Chambers USA has ranked us in Band 1 for national IP litigation practices since 2011, and Law360 recognized us as Technology Group of the Year in 2017.
