ITC Litigation / Section 337

Within a matter of months, the International Trade Commission (ITC) can enter orders directing U.S. Customs to seize products of companies that may be importing goods that infringe a U.S. IP right. Even companies that are not named specifically in an ITC complaint can face seizure of products under a general exclusion order issued by the ITC.

Allen & Overy's ITC trial lawyers in Washington, D.C. and around the world represent complainants, respondents, and third parties in these fast-paced, 'bet-the-company' matters. Our team, composed of seasoned trial lawyers and technical specialists, has represented clients effectively in more than 60 ITC investigations at the ITC and at U.S. Customs.
