Practice Areas

MKW’s litigators and prosecutors have extensive experience handing the wide range of legal issues that govern patents that are necessary to implement industry standards (Standards Essential Patents). MKW litigators have been involved in SEP-related litigation and arbitration involving some of the cellular telecommunications industry’s most influential rights holders and implementers in the U.S., Japan, and China. Because of this experience, MKW’s SEP attorneys bring a deep understanding of the unique patent and antitrust regimes that govern SEPs domestically and internationally. They have experience advising standards implementers, rights holders, and standards bodies.
