Elizabeth A. Niemeyer represents and advises international and domestic clients, both large and small, in patent litigation and administrative proceedings in the electrical arts before the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC), in federal district courts, and before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
Elizabeth’s recent representations have covered technologies ranging from smartphones and LEDs to ink cartridge holders. Given the range of issues that each case presents, she works with clients to tailor representation to the specific needs of a particular matter.
Recognized by The Legal 500 U.S. for ITC patent litigation and as a Next Generation Lawyer, Elizabeth has been involved in several trials at the ITC, during which she gained experience in all aspects of offensive and defensive patent litigation, from pre-trial investigations through discovery, trial, and post-trial procedures.
Her first-hand experience has also given her unique insight into the procedure and strategy involved in ITC investigations and an ability to convey that information to her clients. In addition to her ITC work, Elizabeth represents clients in federal district courts and is particularly familiar with the D. Delaware; C.D. and N.D. California; and E.D. Texas.
She also represents clients either challenging patents or having their patents challenged before the USPTO. Her breadth of experience allows her to provide timely, strategic advice in developing areas of practice.
