A large portion of our IP group is devoted to litigation in federal and state courts and Courts of Appeal, particularly before the Federal Circuit and International Trade Commission. And we are involved in the entire array of IP matters. We prosecute patents, create defensible portfolios and negotiate licensing agreements and enforce them aggressively.

Our validity, infringement and enforceability opinions are authoritative and of the highest quality.
We handle matters involving computer hardware and peripherals, software, memory devices, artificial intelligence, telecommunications, semiconductors, electrical and electronic devices and digital rights. Our particular focus within the electronics arena include radar systems, aircraft electronics, electrical motors, robotics and consumer products such as audio and visual electronic devices. In the area of software, we implement copyright registration programs in the United States and abroad.
We routinely advise clients on validity and infringement of software patents in diverse fields such as computer networks, CASE and CAD systems, windowing, operating systems, industrial and consumer application programs, image processing, graphics, facsimile machines, general ledger accounting, modem control and many more. The Firm's software licensing responsibilities range from negotiating individual deals for clients to ongoing, across-the-board representation of software and database suppliers.
