Our team includes litigators with experience in all areas of intellectual property litigation. Our litigators have championed our clients’ important trademark, patent, copyright and trade secret rights in courts across the country. Additionally, our litigators have extensive experience enforcing and defending against patents in the most active jurisdictions in the country, including the Eastern District of Texas, the District of Delaware, the District of New Jersey and the Northern District of California. Our litigators have practiced before Judges in each of these jurisdictions, becoming familiar with each court’s local rules and each Judge’s personal procedures. Our team has extensive experience practicing before the Patent Trials and Appeals Board, petitioning for the inter partes review of patents under the rules set forth in the America Invents Act of 2012. Our team practices before state courts, enforcing or defending against claims of trademark infringement and unfair competition.
Our firm has relationships with experts in the technological fields most frequently litigated, including software, computer systems, medical devices, pharmaceutical products and mechanical devices. Additionally, our firm has relationships with local counsel firms in the jurisdictions we do not currently practice. Our firm is capable of handling matters for Fortune 500 companies that involve full patent portfolios and large corporate defendants and our firm is experienced in assisting smaller clients secure financing to monetize their single patent. We are prepared to litigate in any jurisdiction, regardless of the technology at issue, and regardless of the size of the case.
While our firm is always prepared to litigate from initial pleadings through trial, we also understand that litigation is expensive and burdensome on our clients. Our firm is devoted to resolving our clients’ disputes early in the litigation process or prior to litigation entirely. Accordingly, our attorneys are skilled and certified in alternative dispute resolution and have settled thousands of intellectual property disputes. Additionally, our firm’s fee arrangements are flexible, and can be adapted to best serve our clients’ needs, including accepting cases on an hourly basis, on a fully contingent fee model or on a hybrid hourly/contingent fee agreement.
