Patent Litigation

Whether your company needs help enforcing its patent rights against third parties, or defending against claims of patent infringement, the attorneys in Arnall Golden Gregory’s Patent Litigation practice have the experience and dedication necessary to protect your company’s most valued technology. We have represented numerous clients from a variety of industries in patent lawsuits, in Federal District Court litigation, U.S. Patent Office interference and reexamination proceedings, and enforcement actions in many other jurisdictions around the world. 

Our attorneys have extensive industry experience in the software, pharmaceutical, and medical device industries, and use that experience to find solutions in patent disputes that match the client’s objectives and needs. When litigation arises, AGG attorneys will work to identify the strategy that best meets the needs of the client, be it licensing, reexamination, seeking preliminary injunctive relief, or other available options.

When circumstances call for it, AGG’s patent litigators work closely with our FDA and International practice groups, and are particularly well-versed in the unique challenges that these clients face. International clients are typically wary of U.S. litigation. We work proactively with them to avoid litigation where possible, and to manage their expectations while always working toward the best result when litigation occurs.

FDA-regulated companies face unique issues under the Federal Food and Drug Cosmetic Act, such as Hatch Waxman procedures, exclusivity issues, and product approval requirements. Our patent litigation efforts are always coordinated with our regulatory experience to achieve the most effective result possible.

Our patent litigation attorneys not only understand patent law, but the science involved.  AGG’s patent litigators have handled matters involving a wide range of technologies, including pharmaceutical products, medical devices, telecommunications, text messaging systems, video surveillance systems, internet websites, point-of-sale credit card transaction processing, video streaming, call forwarding, voice mail, interactive voice response systems, computer software, cable television signal distribution services, power tools, brake components, shipping containers, shelving, poultry processing equipment and children’s toys.
