Knobbe/Martens: Intellectual Property Law

Appellate Practice and the Federal Circuit

Knobbe Martens has the knowledge and experience to handle any intellectual property appeal.  We have extensive experience and success before the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, which handles all of the nation’s patent appeals.  We have had similar success before the regional circuit Courts of Appeals in trademark, copyright, and other intellectual property matters. 

We have successfully handled numerous landmark appeals on behalf of our clients, and we have written dozens of successful amicus briefs to the U.S. Supreme Court, U.S. Courts of Appeals, and State Supreme Courts in cases having extraordinary impact on the development of intellectual property law.  Nearly all of our appellate practitioners have technical backgrounds, including many with advanced technical degrees and industry experience.  And many have served as law clerks for judges on the Federal Circuit and other appellate courts.

In addition, Joseph Re in our Orange County office is a past president of the Federal Circuit Bar Association and is a former member of the Federal Circuit’s Advisory Council, a group of select attorneys selected by the Chief Judge of the Federal Circuit to advise the Court on various issues affecting the practice before the Court.
