Champions of Intellectual Property
Your investment in intellectual property protection doesn’t always end with securing a patent or trademark. And neither does Patterson Thuente’s ability to safeguard your IP assets. Our clients have access to a litigation team with experience and successes in the courtroom, as well as the boardroom. Our approach to developing an intellectual property litigation strategy begins with our client’s business goals. Our aim is always to win, but winning can mean different things. Sometimes, the best approach is taking a matter to trial or appeal. More often, brokering an advantageous agreement is preferable because it lets our clients get back to what they do best—running their businesses. Our litigation team has been called “creatively efficient.” That means we don’t waste time or resources getting to our client’s ideal outcome.

District & Appellate Court Experience
Our clients’ cases take us across the country, giving us experience and connections in a number of jurisdictions—particularly the IP litigation hotspots like the Eastern District of Texas, Eastern District of Virginia, Northern District of California, and Western District of Wisconsin.
Most of our seasoned, trial-ready litigators are also patent attorneys. Because they know how to craft strong and well-defined claim sets, they also know how to pick them apart. It’s a powerful combination that gives our clients an edge in the courtroom and at the bargaining table.
