Litigation - Patent

John Desmarais is the single best patent litigator in the U.S., in my opinion. His firm has deep expertise and technical knowledge, combined with genuine trial skills and a practical understanding and approach to business. There is no firm like them.

The Desmarais team is sharp, creative, and responsive. Partners Paul Bondor and Laurie Stempler are particularly effective, not to mention easy to work with, and benefit from a deep talent pool of junior partners and associates. This is the team to call when you need the Special Forces.

My company has used Desmarais for several litigations. All but one have been resolved. Each resolved matter has resulted in a favorable settlement. We have one pending matter, and thus far we have had great success in our motion practice.

Litigation - Patent

I have worked with the Desmarais team for six years on numerous patent litigation matters. Their substantive expertise and strategic thinking are consistently outstanding. The written work product and the manner in which they manage and drive complex litigation are unfailingly excellent. While each of the partners with whom I've work is a great talent, in terms of work product and courtroom skills, that level of talent extends to and includes the associates that work for the Desmarais firm. The Desmarais partners are loyal to their clients and are genuinely committed to seeing that the clients' legal and business objectives are achieved. Desmarais LLP has long been a "go-to" firm for my company and will continue to be.
