recently analyzed patent opinions issued by the Federal Circuit during the first half of 2016, ranking Finnegan as one of the firms with the most wins in patent cases before the appeals court. Notably, the firm scored remarkable victories on appeals from the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), including wins for clients Covidien and PPC Broadband.

said, "Our advantage is just the experience we have, and knowing what arguments are going to be more successful on appeal. That's what Finnegan brings to the table. All of us have a lot of experience jumping in after the disaster has struck and seeing what we can do to salvage the case."
