Apple has added Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher to its legal team in a messy patent fight where the company alleges improper ex parte contact between its opponent and key officials at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office tainted the outcome of an administrative patent trial.

The iPhone maker is asking the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) to reverse a final decision in favor of Voip-Pal.com, and instead declare the patents related to voice-over-internet protocol invalid as a sanction. If the PTAB isn’t willing to take that extraordinary step, then Gibson partners Mark Perry and Brian Buroker will likely be leading the charge for Apple to the Federal Circuit. Because of the unusual posture of the case, Apple was forced to preserve its appellate rights Thursday.
