International Trade Commission/Section 337

Understanding the International Trade Commission’s practices and rules is fundamental to success at the ITC — a key forum for global, high-stakes intellectual property and unfair competition disputes related to U.S.-imported goods. That’s why companies turn to McGuireWoods’ ITC team for the insight and judgment honed over years of acting for clients in more than 70 of these Section 337 investigations.

Worldwide discovery and expedited schedules are just two elements that differentiate ITC investigations from traditional patent litigation. Our team handles matters at every stage of the process: ITC, U.S. Customs and the Federal Circuit. McGuireWoods’ trial lawyers act for complainants and respondents in these fast-paced disputes at the ITC, where more cases go to trial than in district courts. We navigate worldwide discovery and expedited schedules as well as obtain ITC exclusion orders and help Customs enforce them. We also act for importers to ensure Customs does not seize or block their non-infringing products based on broad ITC orders.

The experience of McGuireWoods’ ITC team covers a range of technologies including:

  • semiconductors
  • flash memory
  • printer cartridges
  • driver assistance cameras
  • insulation products
  • laminates
  • laser bar code scanners
  • medical devices
  • chemicals

We draw on our skills in patent law, trial practice, ITC procedures and licensing to protect our clients’ interests. Whether the intellectual property involves a product or process, clients trust McGuireWoods to handle their bet-the-company matters and help achieve their business goals. Under extreme deadlines, our strength is finding quick, effective relief for our clients while relentlessly focusing on trial preparation and avoiding costly distractions, whether the unfair act or infringement occurs in the United States or abroad.
