Patent Litigation

Recognized Excellence

Haynes and Boone’s Chambers-ranked 100-lawyer intellectual property practice group features highly-regarded national patent litigation teams, distinguished by their commitment to getting the best possible results for our clients. 

Haynes and Boone is recognized as a “Go To” firm for intellectual property litigation. (BTI Litigation Outlook 2013). Indeed, three of our patent litigators have been recognized in the IAM Patent 1000: The World’s Leading Patent Practitioners, including David McCombs (“an absolute straight shooter, he is incredibly reliable and trustworthy, as well as being academically and technically brilliant”); Phillip Philbin (“he represents both plaintiffs and defendants in patent cases across the country and has won precedent-setting victories for clients”); and Richard Rochford (known for his “calm demeanor” in the heat of battle, “he is great at explaining issues clearly and concisely in the courtroom”).

Team Approach

Our depth of talent - from first chair trial lawyers to experienced patent lawyers with the specific technical expertise required - gives our clients a significant advantage. Success in patent litigation typically requires a well-coordinated team. As IAM researchers recognize: we “coordinate a team of people very effectively”, and are “skilled at reaching into the ranks of the firm to appropriately staff matters to best suit clients’ needs.”

Strategic Focus

Our success is built on the satisfaction and loyalty of our clients, which we earn by a sharp focus on all of their objectives: business, legal, competitive and budgeting. We partner with our clients, where appropriate, to develop and implement strategies that look beyond the particular lawsuit. For example, we have a great track record and cutting edge experience in Patent Office proceedings. We regularly apply that experience to determine whether Post Grant Proceedings will effectively complement or forestall District Court litigation.
