The United States District Court in Delaware has become a premier venue for much of this country's major patent and other intellectual property litigation. The Ashby & Geddes Intellectual Property group regularly advises co-counsel and clients on intellectual property matters, and members of the group serve as Delaware counsel to some of the country’s largest corporations in prosecuting and defending patent, trademark, and other intellectual property litigation in the District of Delaware. The firm’s intellectual property lawyers are well known to the Court and have served on its Permanent Lawyers Advisory Committee, its Intellectual Property Advisory Committee, and a subcommittee tasked with creating uniform jury instructions for use in patent litigation.
Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers (2006) described the firm’s Intellectual Property group as an “’efficient and polished team’” that is “often referred to on complex patent or IP litigation matters’”. According to Chambers, our clients praise the Intellectual Property group’s ability to “’stay one step ahead’”, and they appreciate our “’reasonable, practical approach that rests upon building harmonious relations between in-house counsel and outside counsel’”.
