Intellectual Property and Antitrust
For More Information
Our expertise regarding the interplay of IP and antitrust issues is well established. One of our lawyers was a principal drafter of the joint DOJ/FTC IP Guidelines, and we work closely with Morgan Lewis’s intellectual property lawyers on antitrust issues arising out of patent disputes.
We have extensive experience with antitrust claims relating to:
- procurement and enforcement of patents
- patent and copyright pools
We have handled antitrust cases arising from patent disputes involving the technology embodied in products as diverse as CDs and DVDs, cardiovascular stents and balloon angioplasty catheters, semiconductors, VCRs and flat glass.
Working closely with Morgan Lewis’s intellectual property litigators, we have also developed a particular expertise with damages issues in patent cases, including the relationship between damages issues and antitrust claims.
