Intellectual Property

A successful IP practice requires a seamless integration of business law and litigation, cutting-edge science and regulatory expertise. In the U.S. and abroad, our team of 175 litigators, transaction lawyers, patent attorneys and scientists protects and maximizes our clients’ IP assets, within a rapidly changing environment.

Intellectual property assets now represent two-thirds of the value of large businesses in the U.S. For some clients, these assets represent an entire career or a body of research; for others, they're a 100-year-old trademark, or a newly acquired license. Whether it’s structuring transactions or resolving high-stakes property disputes, we understand the unique needs of each client, and anticipate how those needs will change over time. With superior technical abilities – from scientists who’ve worked in the field, to litigators with ITC and federal court experience – we’re privileged to represent national and international companies in a broad cross-section of industries.

We excel at communicating complex technology and marketing concepts to judges and juries in an accurate and compelling manner. Perhaps that’s one of the reasons IP Law and Business ranked Goodwin Procter as one of the nation’s top intellectual property defense firms. We successfully handle all intellectual property matters effectively and efficiently.
