With more than 200 attorneys, Winston & Strawn’s IP practice is one of the most active and highly regarded in the country. Our success has been driven by a simple strategy: we attract the best trial lawyers, support them with strong technical lawyers, and those teams get results. Winston’s IP practice is unique in that regardless of the venue, discipline, technology, industry, client or case, we have a strong story to tell. Our attorneys understand that IP litigation is a means of establishing a client’s future competitive position rather than simply resolving a dispute that arises out of past conduct, and we have substantial experience providing assistance to clients who use intellectual property as part of their business strategy.
