Our antitrust attorneys have substantial IP experience to better meet our client’s IP counseling and litigation needs. Our team assists the Intellectual Property Practice Group in assessing the antitrust implications of the acquisition of exclusive intellectual property rights that trigger HSR filings or the antitrust consequences of settlement agreements in infringement litigation. In cases as diverse as Microsoft and generic drug litigation, the firm’s attorneys have successfully litigated issues concerning the interface between intellectual property rights and the antitrust laws.
