Munck Wilson Mandala has a distinguished nationwide intellectual property (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 experience 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. Because we bring years of technology experience to each matter, we are uniquely qualified to understand — and explain to the judge or jury — the complex technical issues involved in patent litigation and other sophisticated IP litigation matters.
Clients call on us in these high stakes, bet-the-company matters because we know how to try — and win — complex cases. We have the knowledge, skill and resources to effectively and efficiently handle any IP dispute, whether we are aggressively enforcing our clients’ IP rights or defending our clients against patent infringement claims. Our seasoned trial lawyers have significant experience handling IP disputes in state or federal trial and appellate courts around the country, including in popular venues for patent infringement actions such as the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. 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.
We also know technology. 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. Because we understand our clients’ technology and business, we are better equipped to shape their IP litigation strategy, manage litigation in ways that support their business objectives, and work directly with their scientists, programmers and engineers in their particular areas of expertise. Our firm includes attorneys fluent in Mandarin Chinese, Korean, Spanish and Italian, further enabling us to “speak your language.”
While our Dallas headquarters situates our firm in the heart of one of the leading business and technology climates in the country, our office in Marshall, Texas provides us a significant presence in the Eastern District of Texas, one of the country’s premier patent litigation venues.
