Lewis Roca has more than 70 intellectual property lawyers, including a deep bench of IP litigators with the ability and experience to handle intellectual property litigation of all types throughout the country.
We make the complex simple. We staff IP litigation with lawyers that have deep technical and subject matter expertise combined with proven trial lawyers that are accustomed to handling complex litigation to verdict. Blending these skill sets allows us to present the most complex issue in an easy to understand manner that resonates with judges and juries.
We do not litigate like everyone else. Many IP litigators—especially in larger firms—handle predominantly defense-side work. Beating the competition is difficult when one has not litigated from their perspective. We maintain a strong balance of litigating both affirmative cases for our corporate clients as well as defending them. We are equally comfortable on the defendant and plaintiff side. Further, incorporating our complex business litigators into cases invites a fresh perspective on how to advance an IP case and employ creative strategies to achieving the client’s goals.

ITC Section 337 Litigation
Given the enormous stakes in an ITC investigation, hiring a firm with the right expertise is essential. Lewis Roca lawyers have been involved in numerous ITC proceedings, and we represent the full spectrum of technologies, including math, chemistry, physics, life sciences, mechanical engineering, computer science, and electrical engineering. Our lawyers have a national reputation for high caliber performance at every level, and our litigators can make even the most complex technical subjects clear to the judges and staff at the ITC.
Our intellectual property lawyers work with clients to protect the business assets that provide the most crucial competitive advantage — an organization’s trade secrets and proprietary information. Vigilant maintenance of trade secrets is vital due to the fact that corporate information becomes more vulnerable to theft every day.
Our lawyers provide legal solutions that can be customized for all 50 states and are designed to avoid litigation, heavy financial investments or costly government filings. Trade secret, unfair competition, and non-compete protections include a variety of legal services to protect confidential information, trade secrets, and intellectual property from actions by former employees or others who wish to gain an unfair competitive advantage.
