Involvement in an intellectual property dispute can be challenging and time-consuming. Our attorneys support you every step of the way. We work to understand your unique business and financial goals to discern how to best handle your case.

Our Intellectual Property team is comprised of seasoned professionals with the necessary experience and educational backgrounds to understand highly technical cases. With knowledge across a breadth of disciplines, we are prepared and well-equipped to effectively serve clients across virtually any industry. We have previously handled cases involving the enforcement of copyrights and trademarks, patents and trade secrets. We have handled intellectual property cases in courts across the country including district courts, federal appellate courts, state courts and agency tribunals.

Our team also includes a number of individuals with backgrounds in technical fields such as chemical, materials science, biochemical, electro-mechanical and mechanical engineering. This allows our team to understand the technicalities of our clients’ cases and ensure that we gain comprehensive protection of our clients’ intellectual property assets.

We are equipped to handle cases that are equally complex and document intensive. Our team’s depth of experience allows us to clearly communicate your matter to judges, juries, mediators and arbitrators.

Pretrial Strategy

From the start, we utilize our technical and legal expertise to determine the best course of action to secure favorable results. To understand your case, we formulate appropriate and thorough litigation strategies through witness selection and preparation, oral arguments, depositions, document production and drafting of legal memoranda and motions.

We have the capabilities to examine millions of documents through electronic discovery. We work with forensic investigators and former FBI analysts to convert electronically stored information into a format that is usable and effective in litigation through metadata analysis and forensic examination and restoration. The success of high-volume eDiscovery starts early and requires foresight and strategic planning to streamline review and production of what could be an unmanageable quantity of documents. Our attorneys develop an eDiscovery plan which includes management of documents, negotiation of terms and parameters, execution of examining documents, evaluation for privilege, and determination of methods to effectively leverage this information in court. Our capability in handling eDiscovery is extremely useful in intellectual property and complex litigation matters.

While we are always prepared to go to trial, we pursue pre-trial options through alternative dispute resolutions when appropriate. We have a team of trial attorneys who are comfortable in the courtroom and experienced in trying issues before judges and juries. No matter the method used to resolve your matter, we are cognizant and considerate of your business and financial goals and look for cost-effective and case-effective solutions.

Settlements

Going to trial can be a distressing event. Our team utilizes settlements when appropriate to secure favorable outcomes in a more cost-efficient and time-effective manner. Based on our experience, we can craft settlement agreements that meet your business and financial goals.
