Our firm’s exclusive focus on intellectual property is invaluable when advancing our client’s position in patent disputes. We are experienced in all aspects of IP litigation. Unlike many law firms, our experience does not require disparately-experienced lawyers to address the inter-related IP issues (i.e., technical expertise, intricate USPTO procedures, and federal court practice and evolving legal theories for proving infringement). Our solid litigation track record has consistently demonstrated the ability to resolve matters successfully and efficiently.
Over the years, we have handled hundreds of IP litigation cases, including patent, trademark, trade dress, unfair competition, trade secret, trademark opposition and cancellation proceedings, and UDRP domain name arbitrations.
While we will gladly try a case whenever necessary, effective pre-trial strategy is by far the more cost-effective path. This is consistent with historical data that shows fewer than four percent of district court patent cases ever go to trial. We work hard to analyze a case before trial to explore alternatives such as engaging in mediation or arbitration, seeking relief from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office or the International Trade Commission, or negotiating a settlement. In the event that patent litigation does not proceed to trial, we assist with settlements that allow our clients to meet their business objectives.
