Intellectual Property Litigation

When representing clients in the enforcement of their intellectual property rights, our attorneys pursue the most cost-effective manner for resolving disputes based on their keen understanding of client business needs, legal issues, technical matters and potential risks and costs of litigation and other strategies. Our representation includes companies and technologies in biotechnology, life sciences, pharmaceuticals, medical and surgical devices, semiconductor manufacturing and computers and software.

We regularly prosecute and defend against claims of: infringement, misappropriation and counterfeiting of all intellectual property assets, including patents, trademarks, trade dress, trade secrets, copyrights, licenses and domain names. We are experienced at handling complex disputes related to ownership, unfair competition and business practices, false advertising, contracts, computer technology and software matters.

Our experienced attorneys appear in litigation matters and handle proceedings before state courts, federal district courts, and the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. We have extensive trial experience and are skilled at handling all phases of litigation, including temporary restraining orders, preliminary injunctions, seizures, declaratory judgment proceedings, trials and appeals. 

Because our focus is on the business needs of our clients, when the costs or risks associated with litigation are not in their best interest, we draw upon our extensive experience using alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation, arbitration and negotiated settlements.
