K&L Gates provides tailored attention to all types of transactions across a fully integrated global platform. Our team around the world provides services to Global 500, Fortune 100, and FTSE 100 corporations, privately held and venture-backed companies, partnerships, private equity firms, and other investment funds, management groups, and entrepreneurs.

The Pittsburgh office has approximately 100 litigation lawyers active in courts and in ADR forums in a wide variety of disciplines: securities, insurance coverage, construction, business torts, oil and gas, bankruptcy, banking, intellectual property, antitrust, white collar crime, product liability, toxic tort, environmental, class actions, and employment litigation, among other areas. Our clients are drawn from around the nation and the world, and the venues in which they use our litigators are equally far-flung. The Pittsburgh office is the fulcrum for a nationally recognized insurance coverage practice, which has litigated cases on behalf of policyholders in more than 30 states across the nation, as well as nationally recognized litigation practices focused on toxic tort defense, construction and complex commercial litigation. In addition, the Pittsburgh office maintains one of the most active commercial litigation practices in state and federal courts in Pennsylvania and throughout the region. As a result, our trial lawyers have been recognized by the American College of Trial Lawyers, International Academy of Trial Lawyers, American Law Institute, Best Lawyers in America, Chambers USA, The Legal 500, the National Law Journal, and other prestigious trial groups and publications for their trial work and litigation accomplishments.

Our intellectual property practice in the Pittsburgh office began more than 25 years ago. Many of our lawyers are registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and have advanced technical degrees provide the complete range of intellectual property services from patent, trademark and copyright application preparation and prosecution, to providing advice, counseling and opinions relating to IP. In addition, our lawyers have extensive experience in transactions involving intellectual property, including IP due diligence and negotiating and drafting complex intellectual property acquisition agreements. Our lawyers also handle licensing and portfolio development in a wide variety of fields such as software, e-commerce, biotechnology and mechanical products. Some of our areas of special technical expertise include medical devices, advanced materials, agricultural products, financial services, and chemical products. Further, our sizable trademark practice is privileged to handle many significant global brands. Our intellectual property litigators handle complex litigation nationwide in all aspects of intellectual property, have substantial jury and appellate experience and, working with our Seattle office colleagues, recently represented Carnegie Mellon University in its long-standing patent infringement suit against chipmaker Marvell Technology Group Ltd. and Marvell Semiconductor Inc. Following one of the largest jury verdicts on record, the case culminated in a $US750 million settlement for the University.

The Pittsburgh office and its energy lawyers continue to represent the interests of the oil and gas industry in all of its facets. Our oil and gas team includes lawyers licensed to practice in the active areas of the Appalachian region, including Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Ohio and who are experienced in all areas of law associated with Marcellus Shale and associated infrastructure, including: regulatory/tax issues; mineral rights/leases; access to public lands; siting and land use; permitting; water resource challenges; wastewater treatment/management; surface use agreements; mediation and arbitration; public policy; and litigation.

The Pittsburgh office offers a comprehensive and sophisticated real estate practice representing clients in projects in Southwestern Pennsylvania and across the country. We represent many of the leading developers in our region in the development, management, financing and sale of retail, office, and industrial properties; we counsel many of Pittsburgh’s largest corporations regarding their space needs, including leases, acquisitions and dispositions; and we represent civic and non-profit organizations in connection with many of the significant redevelopment projects that have transformed the face of Pittsburgh. Our real estate attorneys draw on our deep strengths in construction law and litigation, environmental, tax assessment appeals, entity structuring, public policy and creditors rights to offer a full array of legal services to our real estate clients. We have significant experience in energy-related matters, including power plant development, financing and sales, and wind power development.
