Federal Trials & Appeals

When your valuable brand is under attack, sometimes it’s necessary to protect it by turning to litigation. In recent years alone, we’ve filed or defended more than 500 cases in federal district courts.

Recent Pattishall cases have resulted in more than 150 leading federal appellate and district court opinions in non-patent intellectual property law. Pattishall has been recognized for many years as the preeminent trial and appellate firm in our field, whether measured by the number of federal cases handled or by the results achieved.

We have litigated to protect brands for clients as diverse as:

  • Bayer
  • BP North America
  • Eli Lilly & Company
  • EMC Corporation
  • Encyclopedia Brittanica
  • Ford Motor Company
  • John W. (Johnny) Carson (estate of)
  • Kellogg Company
  • Kohler, Inc.
  • Medline Industries
  • Owens Corning
  • PepsiCo
  • The American Medical Association

And while we are proud of our litigation and trial successes, we recognize that each dispute is unique and some matters are best resolved outside of the courtroom. We pride ourselves in working closely with our clients, approaching each matter creatively, and finding solutions that best fit the needs of the client.
