IP Litigation

Our Experience

Goulston & Storrs has a broad range of litigation experience and a proven track record of success in handling a diverse array of IP matters involving patents, design patents, trade secrets, trademarks, trade dress, copyrights, sales of counterfeit goods, false advertising and unfair competition.  We have also litigated complex pharmaceutical issues under the Hatch-Waxman Act, which sometimes involve both IP and anti-trust claims.

While our IP Litigation advocates strive to resolve IP disputes without the need for litigation, we aggressively assert and defend our clients’ rights when necessary.  We have substantial trial expertise in venues throughout the country, including the Eastern District of Texas, Eastern District of Virginia, Central and Northern Districts of California, District of Massachusetts, the Southern District of New York, the Eastern District of New York, and the District of Delaware, as well as appellate courts, including the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. 

Our trial lawyers also appear before various mediators and arbitration panels, including in proceedings under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy, as well as administrative agencies, including the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and the International Trade Commission. On a number of occasions, we have also acted as joint counsel for highly specialized patent interference or re-examination proceedings.

We also perform trademark clearance, registration, and brand management services for clients in many industries. See our “Intellectual Property” page in the Business-Corporate section of this site for more information.
