Munck Wilson Mandala has a distinguished nationwide patent and IP litigation practice. As the editors of Chambers USA wrote, our firm is “especially well known for its expertise in IP disputes.” This expertise comes from our combination of high-tech knowledge and exceptional trial skills. By teaming our talented IP lawyers with our accomplished trial lawyers, we deliver focused, strategic, high value representation in a wide range of patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret and unfair competition matters.
Clients call on us in high stakes, bet-the-company matters because we know how to try — and win — complex cases. We have the knowledge, skill, and resources to handle any patent dispute effectively and efficiently, whether we are aggressively enforcing our clients’ patents or defending our clients against patent infringement claims.
Our seasoned trial lawyers have significant experience handling patent disputes in state or federal trial and appellate courts around the country. In 2020, our litigation team was named Litigation Department of the Year in the midsize/general litigation category by Texas Lawyer and our attorneys are recognized annually by The Best Lawyers in America©, Super Lawyers, IP Stars USA, Benchmark Litigation, and Lawdragon 500 Leading Lawyers in America.
We also represent clients in state and federal courts of appeal, including the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. We also represent clients in interference or reexamination proceedings before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, in opposition or cancellation proceedings before the U.S. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, in domain name proceedings under the Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy of ICANN or other registry rules, and in proceedings before the Copyright Office or U.S. Customs agencies.
When you hire our patent litigation team, you are hiring a firm built around technology clients and their specific needs. Our attorneys have diverse and distinguished technical backgrounds and business experience. Many of our lawyers have undergraduate training in highly technical fields — with advanced degrees in many cases. A substantial majority of our attorneys have practical work experience prior to law school and are as much business professionals as they are experienced lawyers.
Our patent litigation team is well equipped to shape your patent litigation strategy, manage litigation in ways that support your business objectives, and work directly with your scientists, programmers, and engineers in their areas of expertise. Our firm includes attorneys fluent in Mandarin Chinese, Korean, Spanish, and Italian, further enabling us to “speak your language.”
Through tenacious research and strategy, we develop patent litigation cases that stand against cross-examination and convince judges and juries to award decisions favorable to our clients.
