Morris James has a defense-based intellectual property practice headed by Ken Dorsney, a registered patent attorney. We have earned our reputation based on decades of success in hundreds of trials, working for and with some of the biggest firms and clients nationwide, acting as counsel in litigation concerning patents, copyrights, trade secret, trademarks, and antitrust dispute cases.
Our particular experience and knowledge of the Delaware courts, procedures, and laws make us an invaluable resource for cases that file in Delaware, most notably to patent defendants. We represent clients in a broad range of industries, including pharmaceuticals, telecommunications, automotive, biomedical, electronics, internet, and software development.
In 2019, our intellectual property practice defended the highest volume of patent accusations in the US District Courts, ranking #1 nationally in the Docket Navigator's Year in Review 2019 report and earning Ken Dorsney the title of “Top Attorney for Patent Challengers.”
Ken Dorsney is particularly regarded for his work in generic pharmaceuticals litigation, recently serving as Editor-in-Chief and co-author for the Third Edition of ANDA Litigation: Strategies and Tactics for Pharmaceutical Patent Litigators, published by the American Bar Association.
Morris James’ Intellectual Property practice of today builds on the firm’s long history of advocacy in patent, trademark, trade secret, and copyright disputes by previous partners including Judge Jurden, Dick Kirk, Richard Herrmann, and Mary Matterer.
Our client commitment and responsiveness is demonstrated by our decades-long relationships with clients and co-counsel. We are a nimble but formidable team, offering superior legal ability, scientific knowledge, and client service to both patent owners and challengers in these highly technical disputes.
eDiscovery is an evolving field that goes beyond technology into multiple legal, security, and privacy issues. Morris James attorneys have taken leadership roles in this area and have developed a system employed firm-wide for a seamless and efficient eDiscovery system. We have participated in the drafting of the Delaware District Court Default Standards, as well as eDiscovery rules and guidelines in the other Delaware Courts.
Efficiencies of Technology
Morris James embraces technology as readily as our clients, and we continually refine our technology in order to improve our service to clients.
Working at the forefront of Delaware’s legal community, we are early adopters of a virtually paperless workflow, litigation management tools and technologically-enhanced courtroom presentations. Our IP attorneys and staff provide clients with around-the-clock case support, including filing with the Court.
Using our internally-developed IP Litigation Database, our attorneys offer valuable information to assist in determining how and when a judge could be expected to rule on a particular issue. As a result, our attorneys are better able to assist in expediting matters and adding value to the litigation team.
