Arnold & Porter LLP's Silicon Valley office provides the firm's clients with sophisticated advice and representation, with particular emphasis on intellectual property and antitrust matters in the life sciences and information technology industries. Our base in this center of innovation also enables our attorneys from around the globe to provide our clients with services in other fields that are critical to their success -- such as government contracting, international arbitration, legislative strategy, anti-bribery laws, product liability, and securities, telecommunications, environmental, and other regulatory matters.
Representative areas of the practice in our Silicon Valley office include:
- Intellectual Property Prosecution and Litigation. Our intellectual property practice involves patent, copyright, trade secret and trademark litigation, patent and trademark prosecution, as well as counseling in relation to IP disputes. Our clients include hardware, software, information technology and biotech companies, as well as companies in more traditional industries for whom IP rights are of paramount importance in their branding and other competitive efforts. We look at securing IP rights and resolving IP disputes as important elements in our clients' overall business objectives.
- Life Sciences. Our life sciences attorneys have a particular focus on patent prosecution; counseling, protection, and enforcement strategies; and IP transactions. We represent both emerging and established biotechnology companies in the US and internationally. We have a track record of assisting clients in the acquisition, licensing, and litigation of biotechnology, medical device, and pharmaceutical patents. Our legal experience in this area is paired with advanced degrees in biology and immunology as well as practical, hands-on experience in addressing the myriad legal issues that impact the biotechnology field.
- Antitrust Litigation and Counseling. Our attorneys have gained an international reputation in the field of antitrust litigation and counseling. We offer a depth of issue and industry experience -- from regulatory inquiries and objections in Washington and Brussels to consumer and competitor claims in California --that is exceptional among firms in the San Francisco Bay Area.
