WC’s IP litigation team has tried multiple patent cases to jury verdicts in the Western and Eastern Districts of Texas. In 2021, WC IP litigation partner John Saba obtained one of the “Top 50 Jury Verdicts” in Texas. WC’s IP litigation team represents both inventors and patent owners seeking to enforce their rights against infringing parties and companies accused of infringement by competitors or non-practicing entities. WC IP attorneys’ experience includes leading all phases of patent litigation from pre-filing investigations, early motion practice (e.g. motions to dismiss, Sec. 101, etc.), through claim construction, to pretrial motions for summary judgments and expert challenges. Each member of WC’s IP litigation team has experience in the three core components of patent cases—infringement, invalidity, and damages. WC handles cases “from phone call to verdict” and serves as local counsel for national firms. WC’s IP attorneys have handled patent litigation across the United States (and before the ITC) and frequently appear in the Austin, Waco, and San Antonio Divisions of the Western District of Texas. WC also represents clients in copyright and trademark litigation.
