Washington, DC has served as the firm’s headquarters since our founding. As one of the largest law firms in the world focusing exclusively on IP, we are well positioned to protect the diverse array of products and breakthrough discoveries across geographies and industries. With over 200 attorneys and IP professionals, our Washington, DC location provides several strategic advantages. Its proximity to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, which sits across the Potomac River in Alexandria, Virginia, allows our attorneys to interact closely with representatives of the PTO during the critical stages of patent prosecution. Our office is minutes away from courts of significance in patent litigation, including the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (the court that hears all appeals from district court patent cases and most appeals from the PTO), the International Trade Commission (ITC), the U.S. District for the Eastern District of Virginia, and the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.
