Patent Litigation

Neal Gerber Eisenberg’s Patent Litigation group provides clients with trial-tested litigation teams tailored to meet the needs of any patent case. We represent a variety of clients, from Fortune 500 corporations to high-tech start-ups, spanning a broad range of industries. We have achieved outstanding results in the federal trial courts across the country, the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, the International Trade Commission, and the newly emerging USPTO Patent Trial and Appeal Board. 

Our Patent Litigation group draws strength from its position within Neal Gerber Eisenberg’s full-service, nationally recognized Intellectual Property practice. Our patent litigation teams are supported by the technical expertise of 25 registered patent attorneys and a patent agent, all with technical degrees in biology, chemistry, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and computer science, including several advanced degrees in the critical electrical engineering and life sciences disciplines. Our patent litigation teams are also augmented by 50 additional litigators throughout the firm who have vast experience trying a wide array of cases before both judges and juries.

Our patent litigators know that for our clients, patent litigation is as much a business issue as a legal issue. With our clients’ business objectives at the forefront, we carefully adjust our staffing, budgeting, and litigation strategy to meet the circumstances of each case. We also know that patent litigation can be protracted and expensive, so we work aggressively to maximize leverage and advantage as early as possible in every case. Whether that leads to a victory at trial or a favorable settlement, we always put our clients in the best possible position to succeed in a cost-effective manner.  

For these reasons, we have received significant national recognition. In addition to ranking us nationally, the U.S. News-Best Lawyers’ “Best Law Firms” survey ranks Neal Gerber Eisenberg as a “first-tier” Chicago law firm for IP law. Chambers USA also recognizes the firm’s IP practice and its co-chair as among the best IP counsel in Illinois.
