Litigation

Overview

Obtaining the highest-quality legal counsel is a must when dealing with disputes over intellectual property. At Taylor English, our unique platform allows us to offer such top-quality talent at a tremendous value for high-stakes IP matters. Our IP litigation team boasts a number of former AmLaw 100 attorneys, former judicial clerks from the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and the Eleventh Circuit, and attorneys with technical degrees and significant industry experience. As one testament to our approach, litigants have selected Taylor English to be their counsel in more than 10 percent of all patent infringement cases filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia since January 2016. If you consider only the cases that actually moved forward, where both sides made an appearance, our representation rises to more than 15 percent of patent cases.

Clients trust us with all types of IP disputes. We have efficiently resolved and won complex utility and design patent infringement cases, inventorship disputes, post-grant proceedings in the USPTO such as Reexaminations, Inter Partes Reviews and Covered Business Method Reviews, trade secret matters, and licensing disputes. We have successfully handled trademark and trade dress infringement cases, trademark opposition and cancellation proceedings in the USPTO, and cases involving trademark dilution, counterfeiting, unfair competition, defamation, domain name cybersquatting, and false advertising. We have also achieved great results for our clients in copyright infringement cases dealing with all kinds of works, including music, movies, screenplays, videos, photographs, artwork, literary works, websites, databases, educational products, maps, and software. Some of our recent engagements, which are highlighted on our Experience page, illustrate the depth and breadth of our IP litigation practice.

Although headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, our IP attorneys litigate in courts throughout the country. We represent clients at all levels of the federal and state court systems and in all the other key venues for resolving IP disputes. We have experience before courts in Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, Texas, California, Utah, Delaware, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Kansas, Virginia, and Wisconsin, to name a few. In addition to our successes in federal-district and state court, we have won IP cases on appeal, including at the Federal Circuit and Eleventh Circuit, in administrative proceedings at the Patent Trial and Appeal Board and the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, and at trial in the International Trade Commission.

Our value-driven model allows us to represent businesses of all sizes – from Fortune 500 companies to startups – as well as solo inventors and individuals, to protect their valuable IP assets or defend against claims of IP infringement or misappropriation. We work with all our clients to understand their goals for each particular matter, minimize litigation risks, achieve optimal results, and manage litigation costs. In short, we strive to give clients the information they need to anticipate and manage IP litigation costs like their other business expenses.
