Covid-19 Response


We at Gardella Grace are painfully aware of the immediate need in our surrounding communities and vulnerable populations.  We recognize organizations that are actively and successfully providing relief in the local community.  A portion of the firm’s May profits will be donated to World Central Kitchen, So Others May Eat, and Martha’s Table.  These companies remain committed to the health, safety, and well-being of the D.C. Metro community and beyond and we feel privileged to be partnering with them.  Above all, our sincere thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and we continually wish our families, friends, and colleagues health and safety.

Areas Of Expertise

Patent Procurement

Overly broad patents are difficult to enforce and easy to defeat. We ensure every patent specification provides rich and detailed descriptions of all potential alternative implementations to craft patent coverage that blocks competitors from a given space.

Post-Grant Proceedings

Our team has handled some of the highest stakes post-grant matters ever adjudicated by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, often running into the billions of dollars. We regularly serve as lead counsel for both challengers and patent owners.

Patent and Trade Secret Litigation

Our enforcement campaigns have included infringement suits in the United States, Europe and Asia involving both patent infringement and trade secret misappropriation. Most cases involved co-pending oppositions and inter parties review proceedings before foreign and domestic patent offices.

We’re unique among small patent firms in our team’s extraordinary breadth of intellectual property experience and expertise.
