In recent years, the International Trade Commission has seen rapid growth as a preferred venue for companies looking to enforce their patent and trademark rights against imported goods. With its unique set of procedural rules and rapid schedule, the ITC presents a unique set of challenges to litigants.
Our litigators have represented and continue to successfully represent our clients before the International Trade Commission, as both complainants and respondents. Our experience before the administrative law judges and familiarity with the ITC staff attorneys in this key intellectual property venue allows Amster Rothstein & Ebenstein LLP to provide experienced and intelligent counsel to our clients involved in investigations before the ITC. In the past few years, we have been successful in obtaining exclusion orders for our clients and defending against claims of infringement before the ITC.
Participating in an ITC investigation, whether as the complainant or respondent, requires a detailed knowledge of the unique procedural rules that are set by the Commission as well as the individual practices of the administrative law judges. The lawyers of Amster Rothstein & Ebenstein LLP have the familiarity with these local practices to secure the best results for their clients.
ITC staff attorneys, who participate in an investigation to advance the public interest, play an important role as well and it is important to select counsel with a solid track record of cooperation and credibility with these individuals.
The breakneck pace of an ITC investigation requires a nimble team with the ability to adapt to rapid changes as a case progresses. As a true boutique firm, Amster Rothstein & Ebenstein LLP can field a team of attorneys with specific experience before the ITC, without crowding the bench.
As with any litigation, the outcome of an ITC investigation depends on substance and the technical merits of the case. Our attorneys can draw on a deep well of technical expertise and industry experience to devise a case strategy that gets the positive results your company requires.
