Intellectual Property

The Firm represents both victims of intellectual property infringement and those who seek to curb abuse by intellectual property holders.  The Firm has extensive experience in patent litigation matters.  Its lawyers have represented both patent holders and accused infringers in a wide range of technologies, ranging from jet engines to implanted electronic medical devices to noninvasive prenatal diagnostics to pharmaceuticals and biologics.  The Firm’s intellectual property practice leader has unique judicial experience, having served for three years as the first patent-specific law clerk to the judges of the United States District Court for the Central District of California who volunteered to participate in the Patent Pilot Program. 

The Firm also has substantial experience in copyright matters, including a class action invalidating the copyright to the song "Happy Birthday to You."
