The world's leading companies turn to Arnold & Porter LLP for help dealing with complex legal and public policy challenges for their intellectual property (IP) rights in the US, EU, and other parts of the world. Arnold & Porter's Intellectual Property group has the technical experience to help clients with the most sophisticated IP problems. We offer an innovative, integrated practice with a global perspective. We are especially renowned for dealing with the problems that arise from applying the law to new technologies. Our distinguished litigation and transactional practices, combined with our regulatory experience and global capabilities, assist our clients in the development, licensing, protection, exploitation, and enforcement of all types of IP rights.
Having IP attorneys located in our US and London offices enables us to provide sophisticated legal counsel for the full range of IP, including patents, copyrights, trademarks, rights of publicity, trade secrets, and related issues. Many members of our team have advanced degrees in engineering and scientific disciplines, as well as vital industry-sector experience that allows them to counsel clients on legal needs in the context of long-term strategic planning. We meet our clients' challenging IP needs efficiently by combining full-time IP lawyers with lawyers from related practice areas who are skilled in dealing with the special issues involving IP in other areas of law, such as US antitrust and European competition; life sciences, pharmaceutical, government contracts, and other regulatory fields; corporate law; public policy; telecommunications; and product liability.
Our IP practice is international in scope. Our clients often have multinational problems and goals, so our lawyers have become experienced and sensitive to international legal and cultural differences. We offer extensive experience in dealing with governmental entities, international partners, and investors throughout Europe, Asia, and North America. We work with a broad range of complex legal regimes in Europe, the US, and other regions, combining our business and legal savvy with our preeminent reputation in litigating highly scientific and technical issues associated with technologies and products at risk. Our experience in representing large multinationals is also invaluable to our smaller clients, whether they are start-ups or emerging companies. We represent all our clients zealously and creatively, using our experience to efficiently provide top-quality service.
