Russ August & Kabat has a preeminent patent litigation practice and is consistently ranked as one of the country’s most sought after patent litigation firms. Our patent litigators have racked up trial wins and multi-million dollar settlements against the likes of Apple, ASUS, Samsung, LG, Microsoft, Hyundai, Riverbed, Toshiba, Philips, American Express, Stryker, and Medtronic. Our win over Apple was the first against Apple in its home-court in the Northern District of California. Our win against LG included the first award of damages for willfulness in a standard-essential patent case, which also included a sua sponte enhancement by the Court. Our win against Hyundai included a jury award in excess of what was sought at trial, was affirmed by the Federal Circuit, and overcame a writ petition to the Supreme Court. We also represented the patent-owner in the first victory for a patentee in an inter partes review before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.
Our patent litigators are a diverse group of trial attorneys, including graduates from Harvard, Stanford, Michigan, Georgetown, Berkeley, Columbia, USC, and UCLA, former patent examiners and district and appellate court law clerks, and lawyers with backgrounds in biology, computer science, engineering, biochemistry, physics, and mathematics.
We are committed to the efficient, creative, and successful enforcement and defense of intellectual property.
