Intellectual Property

Known as the go-to resource for top consulting and testifying experts in IP, WIT works on matters involving the most recognized companies in emerging technologies.

IP litigation is the predominant part of our business. We focus on emerging technical and business disputes in the automotive, financial technology, video gaming, and wireless communications industries. 

Our experts include world-class teams of diverse individuals from academia, industry, and government that support parties involved in significant, high-risk litigation. We advise lawyers on a wide breadth of intellectual property (IP) areas, including technology-based M&A, licensing, valuations, portfolio reviews, patent mining, and offensive/defensive acquisition strategy and review. We actively monitor the key issues impacting IP litigation today and have inside knowledge around 5G/6G, electric vehicles, payment systems, virtual reality technology, and more.

At WIT, we understand the parties, opportunities, and risks associated with IP litigation for emerging technologies and affiliate with the world’s leading consulting and testifying experts to address our clients’ needs in these areas.
