Patent Litigation

Eaton & Van Winkle’s patent practice includes significant litigation, internationally, patent preparation and prosecution of regular utility and design patents, proceedings in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office relating to issued and unissued patent applications, including appeals, re-issues, re-examinations, interferences, and new post-issuance proceedings, as well as invention assessment including patentability, validity, enforceability, freedom to operate, patent interference, and enforceability opinions.

Litigation on behalf of patent holders and alleged infringers is a regular part of what an EVW patent attorney does, including ANDA drug litigation, related patent misuse and antitrust issues, expert witness consultations and testimony, as well as licensing, due diligence review of patent portfolios, mediation, arbitration, and alternative dispute resolution involving patent issues.

Our attorneys have appeared in federal courts throughout the country, we have handled ITC proceedings, through trial and appeal and have worked extensively with local clients seeking a patent attorney in New York. Our jury experience has yielded significant client verdicts.

Technical areas of experience include biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, polymers, organic and inorganic chemistry, computer science, metallurgy, electronics and telecommunications, and mechanical and medical devices.

The firm’s capabilities in this area are more fully described in its Intellectual Property Group description.
