With a presence in Washington, D.C., as well as a national and global presence, the collective experience of Vinson & Elkins’ IP attorneys in over 30 Section 337 investigations by the International Trade Commission provides a perfect platform to meet our clients’ business needs. Our attorneys have “end to end” experience – from pre-complaint, to enforcement by Customs and Border Protection and the Department of Justice – with a wide variety of subject matters, including Section 337 investigations based on patents, trade secrets and unfair competition claims. V&E attorneys have been involved in “bet the company” cases before the ITC and have also handled cases tailored to meet the needs of small- and medium-sized businesses.
Well-versed in the ITC’s rules of engagement, remedies, and
relief, we build a compelling case for our clients, whether domestic or foreign-based,
and whether as complainant or respondent. We represent clients in a variety of
industries, including clean energy, plastics, software, high tech, semiconductors,
consumer goods, and electronics. Our team is deep in scientific and technical
talent and IP litigation experience, and we combine these skills to safeguard
and advance our clients’ interests before the ITC.
