Deep experience in procurement, licensing and enforcement of patents and trade secrets.

Gardella Grace brings a different perspective to each matter because its team has unusually broad experience in patent and trade secret enforcement and procurement. Gardella Grace’s professionals have directed multinational enforcement campaigns, procured large international patent portfolios, defended and defeated patents in post-grant proceedings, licensed patents and trade secrets, developed and implemented defensive and risk mitigation strategies for large corporations, and executed trade secret protection and enforcement programs. Gardella Grace’s attorneys have prevailed in some of the highest stakes disputes to ever pend before the United States Patent and Trademark Office, litigated bet-the-company infringement suits in various United States district courts, supported European and Asian litigation, and managed European oppositions.

Our procurement services include domestic and international prosecution of utility and design patents. Some of our professionals specialize in post-grant proceedings before the United States Patent and Trademark Office and are integrally involved with companion procedures in foreign countries. Our attorneys have extensive experience in patent litigation in district courts throughout the United States. We also support all facets of trade secret protection and enforcement, from trade secret policy development to litigation.
