William L. Roberts

Bill Roberts represents businesses and individuals in high-stakes complex litigation. During his 25 years in practice, Bill has helped clients achieve outstanding litigation results in a broad range of areas, including intellectual property, government contracts, environmental disasters and commercial transactions.

Multi-Plaintiff Litigation

Bill has led the firm’s representation of thousands of clients in two large-scale, high-profile multi-plaintiff litigations: (1) claims arising from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico – the largest environmental disaster in U.S. history; and (2) breach of contract and takings claims against the U.S. government relating to USDA’s Section 515 Multi-family Housing Program. Each of these matters has yielded hundreds of millions in compensation for FaegreBD clients.

Intellectual Property Litigation

Bill has substantial experience in intellectual property litigation. He has represented both plaintiffs and defendants on patent infringement and trade secret misappropriation claims in courts across the country. His achievements in this space include obtaining a complete defense jury verdict against a multi-million dollar claim of patent infringement. He also won a jury verdict for willful infringement of a patent, and has obtained for his clients preliminary and permanent injunctions against patent infringement and trade secret misappropriation.

Government Contracts

Bill’s government contracts practice includes not only complex federal breach of contract and takings litigation, but also bid protests at the federal and state level and disputes over contract changes, terminations, technical data and requests for equitable adjustments.

Appellate Litigation

Bill also has substantial appellate experience, having won appeals at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court.
