Semiconductors

We have decades of experience in all aspects of the semiconductor industry—from wafer fabrication to packaging, from transactional matters to litigation matters, from district courts around the country to the International Trade Commission.

Overview

Our attorneys’ expertise in the semiconductor industry enables us to counsel semiconductor companies on all aspects of their operations, from formation and corporate management to litigation and dispute resolution in domestic and international forums. We have experience in all aspects of the semiconductor space including wafer production, all aspects of wafer fabrication, circuit design, circuit layout, design libraries, processor cores, and many aspects of packaging. We also know the industry very well, including past and current technology nodes; design rules; the design process and tools used in that process; the use of third-party fabs to manufacture products; sales channels; importation; and other aspects of the industry.

On the transactional side, we have assisted semiconductor companies with intellectual-property development, licensing, joint ventures, distribution, and manufacturing including assisting a client in a joint venture to build a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Asia.

On the litigation front, we have represented semiconductor-industry clients in a broad range of matters, from patent and trademark infringement to breach of contract and other complex commercial litigation. We have litigated in district courts all over the country, in the U.S. International Trade Commission, and in matters spanning the globe. We have handled some of the seminal patent cases affecting the semiconductor industry.
