White & Case helps clients navigate the antitrust issues presented by the assertion of patent rights and represents both plaintiffs and defendants in such matters. We know the issues at the intersection of antitrust and intellectual property law, and our teams are staffed to include both antitrust and IP lawyers who collaborate across disciplines. These trial-ready interdisciplinary teams collaborate seamlessly, handling disputes and resolving challenges for our clients. We excel at taking the complex and making it simpler and understandable for judge and jury.
Both patent cases and antitrust cases including patent assertion typically involve highly complex issues ? both legal and technology issues. White & Case has an unprecedented track record of trial victories in complex antitrust cases. Our philosophy is that defendants too often settle these cases by agreeing to pay exorbitant settlements. While our past successes and trial-oriented preparations often allow us to achieve favorable settlements for our clients, we begin preparing for trial from day one and do not hesitate to take cases to the mat when necessary.
