Lawyers in Dechert's Austin office focus on intellectual property litigation, transactions, and counseling, with an emphasis on matters involving electronics and computer-related technology as well as mass torts and product liability.
Dechert's international intellectual property practice focuses on litigation, counseling and transactional IP matters. We protect and defend our clients' rights in patent, trade secret, copyright, trademark, privacy, data protection and IP-antitrust disputes in jurisdictions around the world, including the International Trade Commission.

In addition, we handle strategic patent counseling and patent cross-licensing to help maximize value at every stage of the life cycle of our clients' products and patents. Comprised of lawyers who combine decades of IP experience with training in science, technology, engineering, medicine and business, our fluency in sophisticated subject matter affords our clients an advantage in the courtroom and at the negotiating table.
