Litigation expertise for enforcing your IP rights.
As an intellectual property owner, you must be diligent in enforcing your IP rights. Fortunately, you do not have to go it alone. Our team of IP litigators can assist you in investigating potential infringements, advising you on the best approach to address infringement, and handling the litigation on your behalf if needed. We can also defend you if you are accused of infringing IP owned by someone else.
Our litigation team handles intellectual property litigation exclusively, including patent, trademark, copyright, unfair competition, and trade secret lawsuits. Most of our cases are in federal courts, because the federal courts have exclusive jurisdiction over patent and copyright litigation. We also litigate in state courts in matters involving trademarks, unfair competition, and license agreements involving intellectual property.
Holistic IP Enforcement
Our IP Litigation Focus
Let Our Team Help Your Team
Patent lawsuits tend to be complicated ordeals, due both to the complexity of legal issues and strategies, and to the technical nature of underlying patented technologies. We use a team approach to address the complexities of patent litigation. Our litigators work closely with our patent prosecution attorneys – all having engineering degrees and backgrounds – to address the technological and scientific issues that often arise in patent cases. We understand the importance of formulating case strategies early – addressing both the legal and technological issue. Our team provides the skilled representation you need throughout the process, from pre-filing investigation to discovery, to motion practice, and through trial.
Trademarks are important to your business. For many of our clients, trademarks are their most valuable intellectual property assets. While our attorneys are experts in clearing and registering trademarks, they are also experienced in litigating to protect the goodwill associated with our clients’ valuable brands. Our trademark litigation team can handle various types of trademark disputes, such as trademark and trade dress infringement, counterfeiting, dilution, unfair competition, false advertising, and domain name and cybersquatting issues. We also have extensive experience in handling opposition and cancellation proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.

We are active in alternative dispute resolution, including licensing negotiations, mediation and arbitration. In recent years, numerous disputes handled by the firm have been successfully resolved using these techniques.
We provide litigation services to clients worldwide, including companies based in the U.S., China, Europe, and South America.
