We partner with our clients to manage risk through coordinated and bespoke strategies involving clearance advice, robust portfolios, well-drafted contracts, and up-to-date compliance. Our most satisfactory “wins” are the many instances in which we are able to achieve a client’s objective without resort to litigation. When litigation is unavoidable, Adams and Reese focuses on the commercial objectives of clients, while assessing legal, commercial and reputational risk. In many cases, our ability to probe opponent weakness and globalize a dispute leads to early resolution on commercially favorable terms. We have particular experience in:

  • Multi-jurisdictional disputes
  • Proceedings before the U.S. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board
  • Post grant proceedings before the United States Patent and Trademark Office
  • Trademark, patent and copyright infringement litigation in U.S. federal courts

Our IP litigation teams are supported by our international prosecution lawyers and staffed with attorneys with engineering and technical experience tailored to the relevant technology and industry. We have extensive experience litigating in United States courts as well as managing enforcement matters throughout the world.
