Engineers, scientists, clients: the attorneys in our team have been all of these
Our attorneys have worked in-house at large and small corporations, acting as General Counsel, Litigation Counsel, Patent Counsel, and executives. No one can better relate to a client than someone who has been in their shoes and experienced their problems and concerns first-hand. This is why we communicate openly with our clients, respond promptly to all requests, establish budgets and strive to understand our clients’ short and long-term goals. We understand the implications and tension between legal and business decisions, and work closely with clients to identify and understand their concerns so we can efficiently and successfully guide them through the ever-changing intellectual property landscape.
Our intellectual property team includes skilled engineers and scientists. This allows us to translate our experiences into effective counseling of our clients’ engineering staff as well as business and legal representatives – without ever losing sight of the big picture.
We offer extensive experience in all facets of intellectual property litigation, portfolio management, securing and maintaining worldwide intellectual property rights, and worldwide intellectual property licensing. Our attorneys help protect intellectual property rights – either through non-adversarial licensing and business approaches or, if required, highly adversarial litigation across the United States. We also have significant experience representing companies in intellectual property infringement litigation.
Our clients range from the largest Fortune 500 companies to individual inventors. Having such varied experience gives us unique insights into the tactics and strategies adversaries employ in litigation and licensing, allowing us to counter them in the most cost-efficient and effective manner.
These strengths, combined with King & Wood Mallesons’ global footprint and creative, nimble approach to resolving disputes, make our team singularly well-placed to help clients manage their risks in the global high-stakes arena of intellectual property.
