Aggressive. Creative. Successful.

Strauss Troy has a solid record of aggressive, creative and successful litigation of intellectual property claims and defenses relating to patents, trademarks and copyrights, including both bench and jury trials, and appeals.

  • Our intellectual property litigation team successfully defended, through a jury verdict, a national manufacturer against patent infringement claims relating to mechanical and electronic aspects of production machines.
  • We served as trial counsel in the successful defense of a national manufacturer relating to chemical process patents (ultra-filtration technology), for a case that ultimately was reviewed in the United States Supreme Court and established the present statement of law for proving infringement under the “doctrine of equivalents.”  See Warner Jenkinson Co. v. Hilton Davis Chem. Co., 520 U.S. 17 (1997).
  • Strauss Troy’s litigation group has also prosecuted and defended against trademark and copyright infringement claims in federal and state courts, as well as related state statutory and common law trade secret and unfair competition claim
