Intellectual Property Enforcement and Litigation


Patent, Trademark, Copyright and Trade Secret Litigation

We work closely with clients in the development of effective enforcement strategies for their intellectual property portfolios and also in the defense of enforcement actions.
Warner Norcross + Judd’s intellectual property litigators have handled virtually every type of intellectual property dispute, including patent infringement, trademark and copyright violations, unfair competition and misappropriation of trade secrets. While we are based in Michigan, our practice is national in scope. Our attorneys have appeared in countless U.S. District Courts and several U.S. Circuit Appellate Courts, including the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
Our focus is on achieving practical and cost-effective results. Each case is unique and we make a concerted effort at the outset to assess the merits and risks, discuss business objectives and design a litigation strategy to best meet your needs. Whether the case is large or small, complex or straightforward, we can put together a litigation plan and appropriate staffing. We are also flexible on our billing arrangements, including the handling of cases on a contingent or blended-fee basis.
Post-Grant Proceedings
Our services with respect to post-grant proceedings with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office include:
  • Ex parte reexaminations
  • Inter partes reviews
  • Post-grant reviews

Our patent practitioners have extensive experience in preparing opinions in support of our clients’ business needs, from ensuring an emerging product can be practiced without concern to determining whether knowledge, samples, or products can be exported abroad. Our philosophy is to prepare each opinion to both comprehensively apprise our clients of their risks and options, and to withstand scrutiny if relied on in litigation. Our expertise in opinions includes:
  • Freedom to Operate (FTO), Clearance, or Right to Use
  • Invalidity
  • Non-Infringement
  • Patentability
  • Export compliance
  • Inventorship
