Intellectual Property

Hagens Berman brings to its intellectual property practice the same core values that have brought us tremendous success in litigating against major companies for classes of plaintiffs – we fight for the underdog.

We represent intellectual property owners – inventors, universities and companies – in high stakes patent and other IP litigation. The members of our team have litigated patent cases in nearly every major patent venue in the country, as well as the Federal Circuit and the International Trade Commission. Our IP litigators have tried and won patent cases, recovering on or beating nine-figure patent infringement claims at trial. We work hard to deliver positive results for our clients, and typically base our fees on the results we deliver.

Stellar Reputation

Stellar Reputation

Hagens Berman fights with the creativity and tenacity to continue to raise the bar and take on every case with the goal of achieving the best outcome for the largest group of individuals.



We achieve results, and our track record proves it. While many plaintiff cases result in large legal fees and no meaningful result for the client, Hagens Berman finds ways to return real value.



Our focus on plaintiffs enables us to move more quickly than other firms in reviewing claims and litigating an IP case. Other IP litigation firms are impeded by a tedious process to eliminate conflicts-of-interest.



At the basis of what motivates Hagens Berman is our mission for corporate reform. Through our work, we continue to uphold and fight for the rights of those most vulnerable to wrongdoing.
