Cislo & Thomas’ appellate practice attorneys have developed many years of experience in patent, copyright, and trademark infringement appeals in federal appeals courts, as well as in ex parte and inter partes appeals before the United States Patent and Trademark Office and United States Copyright Office, and ex parte and inter partes reexamination proceedings in the United States Patent and Trademark Office.  As a result, we are equipped to handle all aspects of such appeals, including the unique procedural and substantive legal issues related to appellate practice.  In addition, we can consult and advise other counsel on matters related to appeals of decisions involving intellectual property.  We approach every project with zeal, enthusiasm, and a strong can-do attitude to meet the goals of the client, while expertly navigating the client’s appellate issues.
