Intellectual Property Litigation

Baker Botts is Law360's 2024 Intellectual Property Group of the Year. Our case highlights over the past year include $1 billion in IP verdicts:

  • $479M in reversal for DISH Network
  • $280M judgment for Textron
  • $220M judgment for DXC Technology

Favorable outcomes came in all areas of IP, including competitor patent cases, trade secret cases, and before the International Trade Commission. In addition to Law360's recognition, our IP Litigation team is ranked in Docket Navigator as having one of the top success rates–96.2%–in representing defendants in district courts (2016-2024).

What helps us achieve these results?

  • Experience. Lex Machina identified the number of defensive patent cases handled by Baker Botts’ IP Litigation Practice as among the top 6 nationwide from 2021 through 2023. Our current docket includes over 175 active patent cases and appeals in district court venues throughout the country, at the International Trade Commission, and the Federal Circuit, and the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB).

  • We Listen, We Learn, and We Teach. We are technology lawyers who can hit the ground running in the cases we take on. Our 165 trial lawyers have more than 200 technical degrees and have studied your business before the case begins. We listen and understand your unique perspectives and know how to teach it to the court or a jury.
  • Perfectly-Matched IP Litigation and PTAB Practice. Our extensive knowledge of the USPTO, combined with our litigation experience, differentiates us from competitors. We have handled more than 700 matters before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB).
  • We Effectively Share Risk. Our experience allows us to determine early in a case ways that we can risk share with our clients. We develop alternative fee arrangements that align interests and partnerships with our clients.
