Intellectual Property

Phillips Lytle’s Intellectual Property attorneys offer a full range of services to secure, defend and enforce our clients’ IP rights, including litigation, prosecution and general IP counseling. We’re proud to say all of our patent attorneys became engineers and scientists before lawyers, enabling them to understand the intrinsic technical issues that lie beneath the legal issues.

Our IP attorneys have represented numerous U.S. and Canadian businesses in matters ranging from patent and trademark prosecution, to infringement and validity studies, and complex infringement litigation. These matters cover a broad range of technological disciplines including those related to mechanical, electrical, computing and software fields, as well as those involving business methods and medical devices.
