Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner, LLP is essentially a GP of IP, a true full-service IP firm with experts in every area of IP and every technology. A comprehensive approach to clients’ IP needs and Finnegan’s mega-boutique size underpins their year-to-year, decade-to-decade preeminence in IP litigation across all industries and tribunals. From offices in the United States, Asia and, Europe, Finnegan continues to be one of the world’s largest firms focusing on intellectual property, practicing all aspects of patent, trademark, copyright, and trade secret law, representing clients on IP issues relating to U.S. and European patent and trademark law, international trade, portfolio management, the Internet, cybersecurity, e-commerce, government contracts, antitrust, and unfair competition.

Finnegan offers full-service IP legal experience and technical expertise in virtually every industry and technology, including biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, biologics and biosimilars, chemicals, electronic devices and components, computers and software, financial services and business systems, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), digital health, nanotechnology, automotive, aerospace and aviation, industrial manufacturing, consumer products, media, food and beverage, medical devices, clean energy and renewables, robotics, sports and fitness, textiles, and three-dimensional printing.

With the firm’s practice centered on intellectual property, the firm is able to create economies of scale and focus all resources on providing the best tools, practices, and procedures for clients’ IP matters. More than 300 of Finnegan’s legal professionals hold degrees in scientific disciplines (over 60 hold PhDs), more than 200 are registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and approximately 40 are former USPTO patent examiners. With more than 50 years’ IP experience, Finnegan handles hundreds of litigation cases across the spectrum of IP-related venues, including district courts, the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC), the USPTO’s Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), the Federal Circuit, and the U.S. Supreme Court. Since being one of the first to file a petition and subsequently argue a post-grant review of a covered business method case following the implementation of the America Invents Act, Finnegan is one of the busiest law firms representing petitioners and patent owners in post-grant review proceedings, with more than 90 covered business method reviews (CBMs), more than a dozen post-grant reviews (PGRs, relatively few of which have been filed), and more than 700 inter parties review (IPR) proceedings. The firm files approximately 2,500 US and 1,000 foreign patent applications annually.

Surveys conducted by legal and business publications consistently rank Finnegan as one of the leading intellectual property law practices in the world. The firm is consistently ranked in the United States for contentious and prosecution trademark and patent work by publications including Managing Intellectual Property and The Legal 500, which has ranked Finnegan as a top tier firm in nearly every significant IP category since 2009. The publications cite the firm’s winning record, technical expertise and deep bench of talent in all aspects of IP litigation, including trials, appeals and proceedings at the USPTO and ITC investigations.
