Commercial Litigation

Parr Brown has handled patent litigation at both the trial and appellate levels on issues such as  infringement, validity, inventorship, priority, antitrust implications, licensing, marketing, and injunctions.

We are qualified and staffed to handle all complex patent litigation strategies, including post-grant proceedings in front of the Patent & Trademark Office and the Patent and Appeal Board.

We have litigated patents around the country, particularly in the intermountain region (including Colorado, Montana, Arizona, Nevada, and Idaho), and also many other states including California and New York.  And of course, we have particular experience litigating patent matters in the District of Utah.  Our litigators have experience in front of Utah’s federal judges, and have mastered the District’s relatively new local patent rules.  In just the past few years, several national firms litigating high-stakes patent disputes in the District of Utah have sought out our services as local counsel.
