Intellectual property: the foundation of your business; the heart of our practice

Related Special Reports

At Quinn Emanuel, our intellectual property attorneys are not only technology savvy, they're courtroom-tested veterans.

We represent such companies as IBM (NYSE: IBM), Genentech (NYSE: DNA), Avery Dennison (NYSE: AVY), Siliconix (Nasdaq: SILI), Williams-Sonoma (NYSE: WSM), Nike (NYSE: NKE), AOL, Nextel (Nasdaq: NXTL), Vivendi Universal (NYSE: V), Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC), Shell Oil and others in battles over intellectual properties ranging from fiber optic gyroscopes to recombinant DNA technology.

Over 50 percent of our IP litigation involves patent infringement cases venued in courts throughout the country. These companies hire us because we win. We win because we not only know complex technologies, we know how to communicate them in terms that judges and jurors will understand.

Over 100 of our lawyers are experienced intellectual property litigators. Our IP lawyers are masters in the courtroom. They have been recognized as both top trial lawyers and the very best intellectual property lawyers by state, national and worldwide publications; over 12 have taught trial advocacy at places such as Harvard, Stanford and The National Institute for Trial Advocacy. One is the former U.S. Attorney for Los Angeles; 10 are former assistant U.S. attorneys and two are former deputy district attorneys. They take on the toughest IP cases, with the highest stakes. We are regularly retained by other lawyers and even judges.

Over 30 percent of our IP litigators are also scientists or engineers with the degrees and professional backgrounds our clients need: physics, chemistry, pharmacology, molecular biology and biochemistry; computer science, programming, software and database design and information systems; civil, materials, chemical, electrical, mechanical, manufacturing, automotive and aeronautical engineering; and missile guidance and fire control systems.

However, they are trial lawyers first and foremost. Lawyers who can grasp what's important in a complex patent case are few. Those with the ability to win a jury verdict -- or a summary judgment -- are even fewer. Those who can do both are as hard to find as dark matter. They're at Quinn Emanuel.
