Intellectual Property

We have a rich history of safeguarding our clients’ interests and, today, we are the state’s preeminent law firm for the handling of intellectual property matters.

With a host of well-versed attorneys, our areas of expertise range from patent counseling and trademark registration to intellectual property enforcement and litigation. You create it and we’ll help you protect it.

Intellectual Property Enforcement & Litigation

With the extensive trial experience of our litigation attorneys and the unique background and technical knowledge of our intellectual property attorneys, Wright Lindsey Jennings is uniquely qualified to assist businesses in enforcing their patents, trademarks, copyrights and other intellectual property rights, as well as defending clients against claims of infringement.

Our attorneys have litigated intellectual property cases in Arkansas state and federal courts as well as in the courts of neighboring states. In recent years, we have gained considerable experience in defending Arkansas companies against the patent infringement claims of non-practicing entities or “patent trolls.”

Our attorneys also represent clients in ex parte reexamination and inter partes review proceedings before the United States Patent and Trademark Office. We also have experience managing patent post-grant review proceedings concurrent with related federal district court litigation.

Patent Prosecution & Counseling

Wright Lindsey Jennings has been recognized by Best Lawyers in America as having the top intellectual property and technology law practice in Arkansas. Our team of patent attorneys has vast experience counseling clients on all aspects of patent law. Our patent attorneys have advanced technical degrees and experience in a wide array of technology areas, including mechanical devices, biotechnology and life sciences, nanotechnology, software, electronics, medical devices and processes and chemicals and pharmaceuticals. Our patent prosecution clients range from technology start-up companies and small businesses to colleges and universities to Fortune 500 companies.

We routinely assist our clients in evaluating inventions for patentability and developing cost-effective strategies for protecting their inventions based on the particular needs of their business, including seeking utility, design or plant patent protection. We have drafted and prosecuted hundreds of patent applications in the United States and regularly work alongside foreign patent counsel in Canada, Mexico, Australia, Europe and many countries in Asia and South America to acquire patent rights abroad for our clients. We also have experience analyzing individual patents and even entire patent portfolios for purposes of preparing infringement, validity and freedom-to-operate opinions.
