Intellectual Property litigation often requires a skillful blend of control, persuasion and assertiveness. Our firm has earned a national reputation as litigators who win cutting edge cases before juries, judges and administrative agencies. We take pride in counseling our clients to seek alternatives to litigation, and create positive solutions and settlements when possible. We recommend litigation only as a last resort, after all reasonable avenues of alternative resolutions are explored and exhausted.
We make sure we have a complete and thorough knowledge of our client’s technology, the law and the facts of the case. What distinguishes us, is our ability to convincingly communicate complex technologies and positions to judges and to juries in terms they can understand and appreciate. However, communication with our clients is the most important aspect of our litigations, and we strive to consult you every step of the way in an open and timely manner.
Our litigators have helped shape the intellectual property laws in this country by being a part of major decisions nationwide, in Federal District Courts, the Circuit Courts of Appeal and the U.S. Supreme Court.
