With 220 attorneys, Gibbons is a leading law firm in New Jersey, New York, Philadelphia, and Delaware, providing transactional, litigation, and counseling services to leading businesses nationwide.
In the intellectual property arena, Gibbons is unique among its competitors in the diversity and depth of experience among its attorney ranks. One-third of the IP attorneys who practice throughout the firm’s New Jersey, New York, and Philadelphia offices are former Chief Patent Counsel and Vice Presidents for intellectual property departments in major international companies spanning the life sciences, telecommunications, medical device, and other industries throughout corporate America. The attorneys in the Intellectual Property Department at Gibbons run patent assertions, negotiate IP transactions, conduct due diligence, and structure strategic IP portfolios—both from in-house and outside counsel perspectives. In addition to high quality legal thinking, they bring to the table firsthand industry experience, resulting in solutions that meet both the legal and business objectives of clients. And, with no ‘learning curves,’ they are exceptionally cost efficient in what they do.
High-stakes IP litigation is another mainstay of Gibbons IP practice. The IP Department litigates patent, trademark, and copyright cases throughout the United States. The team members include dedicated Hatch-Waxman litigators representing brand pharmaceutical clients in major drug patent litigations and litigators focusing their practice on cases involving sophisticated electronic, networking, and computer technologies. The Department’s litigators devise and execute strategies that are cost effective and fully compatible with the business objectives of our clients, whether in court, before the ITC, or at arbitration. The Gibbons litigation management approach leverages the Gibbons technology platform for electronic document management and for seamless communication and integration among the litigation team members and the client. The IP litigators typically team with the Gibbons E-Discovery Task Force to create workable and efficient e-discovery plans. The Gibbons approach is oriented to advancing the merits of the case and to addressing the client’s expectations and needs throughout.
