Kirkland's IP practice protects its clients' ideas and technology. Many of its patent lawyers are engineers and scientists, trained and experienced in a variety of technical disciplines and registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. But first and foremost, they are trial lawyers who try patent infringement cases before juries, judges and arbitrators. In addition, our lawyers also argue Federal Circuit appeals and ITC matters. Kirkland has one of the most active trial practices in the country. Our success rate at trial is among the best, with only a handful of losses over the last 10 years despite handling some of the most challenging litigation cases in history. In view of this success, Kirkland's intellectual property litigation practice regularly receives top rankings in legal publications such as Chambers GlobalChambers USAThe Legal 500 U.S.The American Lawyer and Corporate Counsel.
