International Trade Commission

Kenyon & Kenyon LLP’s International Trade Commission (“ITC”) practice is comprised of experienced trial lawyers familiar with the Commission’s unique requirements, including attorneys whose prior experience within the ITC informs their ability to effectively navigate the procedural complexities inherent in Section 337 proceedings. We protect access to trillion dollar consumer markets for the world’s leading companies, by defending their rights to import products into the United States, as well as by securing exclusion orders against their competitors. With a practice that includes the current secretary of the International Trade Commission Trial Lawyers Association, a former president of the ITC Lawyers Association, and a former Editorial Advisory Board member to one of the leading IP legal news publications, Law360, our depth of ITC-related knowledge provides a distinct advantage to companies engaged in ITC proceedings. In addition to exhibiting this knowledge from pre-filing investigation through trial and appeal, Kenyon wrote the book on Section 337 cases. We are authors of the “go-to” treatise on ITC case management, “Unfair Competition and the ITC: Actions Before the International Trade Commission Under Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930.” Such accomplishments recently were touted by Chambers USA and Managing Intellectual Property, which recognized Kenyon as having one of the top ITC practices. We continue to be one of the leading law firms representing complainants and respondents in front of the ITC. Corporate Counsel magazine recently recognized Kenyon for having filed the second highest number of ITC cases in 2011, compared to all other law firms.

Our industry experience is comprehensive. We have handled Section 337 cases involving semiconductors, monitors, software, processors, LCD devices, digital televisions, blu-ray disc players, mobile phones, batteries, medical devices, flooring, sheeting, fans, power tools, garments, yarns, salts, sweeteners, hybrid electric vehicles, antidegradants, sensors and rare-earth magnetics, among many others. When the circumstances require participation in parallel district court proceedings, our clients benefit from our deep technical bench and proven track record in the busiest forums for IP litigation.
