Woodcock Washburn is a national law firm concentrating exclusively in intellectual property law. Our practice has grown to 74 attorneys since the firm was founded in 1946, and all of us provide personal service and trusted advice on a full range of intellectual property services across a wide array of industries and technologies. Our client base is a Who’s Who of national and international organizations that heavily depend on and value intellectual property. Some of the most well known are DuPont, Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, and the University of Pennsylvania.
Intellectual property is or should be a key asset of every enterprise. Woodcock Washburn attorneys develop a thorough understanding of each client’s business and help determine and implement the best strategy to maximize the value of various intellectual assets. We draw on years of industry experience, having worked as in-house and outside counsel to a variety of high-technology businesses.
If a company’s strategy calls for procuring patents, trademarks or copyrights, for example, our prosecution attorneys call forth extraordinary technical depth to serve the client’s best interests. Virtually all Woodcock Washburn attorneys have advanced technical training, and many hold graduate-level degrees. Or, if a strategy requires enforcement or defense of intellectual property claims, our litigation attorneys draw on years of in-court experience to implement it. We believe that our litigation expertise enhances our prosecution, and that our prosecution acumen makes for better litigation.
Woodcock Washburn has received much recognition for the quality of our services and attorneys. The firm was recently named the top intellectual property firm in Pennsylvania by Chambers USA for the tenth consecutive year, and eleven of our attorneys have been named "Best Lawyers in America" which is widely regarded as the preeminent referral guide to the legal profession in the United States.
