With 160 attorneys, research scientists and patent agents—and boasting more than 100 litigators—Brinks is one of the nation’s largest dedicated intellectual property law firms.
We specialize in IP litigation—patent, trademark, copyright and trade secrets. We’ve represented clients at all levels of the judicial system. We not only know the law, but have also helped shape it, having played a signal role as advocates in major decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and other regional federal appellate courts. We’ve earned a national reputation for success.
Brinks is also sharply contemporary. Our success is predicated on deep knowledge of today’s innovative technologies. Our expertise ranges from the life sciences and medical devices to the chemical arts and clean technology, from the electrical arts and computer software to nanotechnology.
Litigation can be costly and disruptive, placing demands on in-house resources and distracting management from focusing on other goals. If circumstances permit, alternative dispute resolution procedures such as mediation or arbitration should be explored. Brinks attorneys have vast experience helping clients resolve their disputes using a variety of alternative dispute resolution procedures.
However, litigation is sometimes necessary—and then Brinks’ litigation experience is essential. Our philosophy is straightforward: to keep it simple. Regardless of the complexity of the technology or legal issues, trial themes need to be clear and persuasive; they need to be developed early in the case. Discovery needs to be strategic and conducted with a purpose. Scorched earth litigation tactics have no place at Brinks. We prepare our cases with an eye to achieving success at key decision points, such as claim construction and dispositive motions.
Brinks has clients in the Fortune 500, the Inc. 5000, and the Ocean Tomo Global 300. In the past 10 years, our attorneys have appeared in more than 550 IP cases throughout the United States, and have achieved successes on behalf of clients in both bet-the-company cases and smaller matters. Case after case, Brinks attorneys have demonstrated the ability to communicate with judges and juries in a clear and persuasive manner.
