Federal Circuit Appeals

We recognize that advocating for our clients before the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit is a distinct practice, requiring specialized knowledge and a nuanced understanding of the court’s inner workings. Our Federal Circuit practitioners have experience across the full scope of the Federal Circuit’s docket, including patent appeals from district courts, appeals of inter partes review proceedings, petitions for review of International Trade Commission (ITC) decisions, government contract appeals from the Court of Federal Claims, and appeals from the Board of Veterans’ Appeals, among others.

Our Team

Co-led by a former law clerk to a US Supreme Court justice and US Court of Appeals judge and by a former law clerk to a US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit judge, and including a number of other former Federal Circuit law clerks, our Federal Circuit practice is known for its experience and remarkable record of success. Morgan Lewis has handled hundreds of appeals before the Federal Circuit, earning us numerous accolades from Chambers USA, The Legal 500 US, Law360, and The American Lawyer.

The lawyers in our Federal Circuit practice are active in the Federal Circuit bar and among them have presented oral argument before every Federal Circuit judge. Our team offers sophisticated appellate-level strategy combined with elite written and oral advocacy. We also bring unique technical backgrounds and advanced degrees in engineering and the sciences, enabling us to provide targeted subject matter mastery to tackle even the most complicated intellectual property (IP)-related appeals.
