Semiconductor Devices

We apply our deep understanding of the relevant technologies to significant cases

With a cross-practice team involving electronic, semiconductor and materials specialists, we apply our deep understanding of the relevant technologies to significant cases. Our attorneys bring considerable technical knowledge gained from experience within industry-leading companies and academic research positions at leading universities, combined with extensive patent expertise.

The team boasts some formidable advocates with extensive experience of EPO opposition and appeal procedure. With experience at the forefront of the law, and a collaborative ethos, we drive cutting-edge and coherent strategies for drafting, prosecution and litigation.

With particular experience in semiconductor memories, processor technology and display devices, we are regularly called upon to take over complex cases in progress before the European Patent Office, and handle commercially significant oppositions.

For many years, we handled the European arm of the multi-national DRAM patent litigation instigated by Rambus which involved parallel actions in a number of national courts and numerous oppositions at the EPO.
