Intellectual Property Litigation

Young Conaway has many years of experience actively litigating intellectual property disputes in Delaware’s federal and state courts, in both jury and bench trials. In these cases we represent national and international corporate clients in patent infringement, trade secret misappropriation, unfair competition, copyright infringement, trademark infringement, and licensing and indemnity disputes.

Drawing upon Young Conaway's foundations as a law firm that tries and wins cases, we are focused on preparing intellectual property disputes for trial. We strive to identify decisive issues early in any litigation, and from that foundation we execute a strategy to win in the courtroom and to meet our clients’ expectation. Our knowledge of the intellectual property issues, combined with our trial experience in all Delaware courts, gives us an edge over our competitors.

The many types of technology which we have addressed in our cases include:

  • telecommunications,
  • biotechnology,
  • medical devices,
  • computer chips and hardware,
  • software,
  • chemical compounds, and
  • pharmaceuticals.

Attorneys in our intellectual property litigation team have served as judicial law clerks on the United States Court of Appeals, United States District Courts (including two current District of Delaware judges), the Delaware Supreme Court, and the Delaware Court of Chancery.

We also are active in speaking at many national seminars concerning intellectual property litigation, and our practitioners are active as officers and leaders in intellectual property focused bar organizations.

Our intellectual property litigation team also strives to balance our work for clients with public service, with pro bono efforts including serving as guardians ad litem for underprivileged children in Delaware, volunteering for Delaware Volunteer Legal Services, and trying and winning prisoner civil rights actions in the District of Delaware.
