Practice Overview


Cravath’s reputation in the area of intellectual property is widely recognized, particularly in the area of patent litigation. From 2011 through 2018, Intellectual Asset Management recognized Cravath as among the top patent practices, noting that “the outstanding depth of its trial expertise” sets Cravath “apart in the competitive New York market.”

The Firm has handled complex patent litigation for generations, literally since the nineteenth century when the Firm handled the electric light bulb patent litigation (for Thomas Edison) and the telegraph patent litigation (for Samuel Morse). Today, the firm’s expertise covers the entire innovation marketplace. We have worked with telecommunications companies like Qualcomm on the most advanced technologies for wireless communication and with pharmaceutical leaders, such as Mylan and Novartis, on patent litigation involving some of the most popular prescription drugs in the market. Our patent litigation over the past several years has covered a wide array of industries, including computers and semiconductors, software, metal alloys, medical devices, chemicals, pharmaceutical and biologic drugs, telecommunications and consumer products.
