Intellectual property litigation

Eversheds Sutherland’s intellectual property litigation team works with clients to spot critical issues early and reach strategically sound and cost-effective resolutions. We listen to our clients and understand their priorities and preferences for each specific matter.

Intellectual property litigation experience

Asserting IP and defending against allegations of infringement are a critical part of an overall competitive strategy – the stakes are high for both sides in a dispute. Eversheds Sutherland regularly handles national and international IP based disputes including multi-patent, multidistrict disputes between industry competitors, as well as defense against non-practicing entity (troll) patent enforcement

For regular small-scale infringements, we will work with you to set up a defined process. Our ability to act practically and strategically means that such matters rarely need to go to court. In doing so, we can help you to build up a reputation as a rights owner who will defend your rights, thereby deterring would-be infringers or those making weak or spurious claims.

Eversheds Sutherland represents both plaintiffs/claimants and defendants in:

  • patent infringement, patent interference and patent-related antitrust suits
  • trademark and trade dress infringement suits
  • trademark opposition and cancellation proceedings
  • copyright infringement suits
  • advertising disputes and unfair competition

We have appeared in courts and administrative proceedings across the U.S., including:

  • U.S. International Trade Commission
  • U.S. Patent and Trademark Office
  • State and federal appellate courts

We represent clients in mediation and arbitration proceedings around the world including:

  • International Chamber of Commerce
  • London Court of International Arbitration
  • Zürich, Stockholm, Paris and Finland Chambers
  • World Intellectual Property Organization

It takes a balanced team to advocate effectively for clients in a variety of industries. Eversheds Sutherland’s Intellectual property litigation team adeptly handles all types of disputes involving widely varied technologies across the world.
