Intellectual Property

Our IP litigators have decades of experience in a broad array of industries and the full range of venues available for resolution of IP disputes, including federal trial and appellate courts, arbitration, ITC, and the United States Patent and Trademark Office PTAB (e.g. IPRs and PGRs) and TTAB. We provide a full range of services tailored to the needs of our clients. Our distributed, cloud-based business model gives us the ability to provide efficient, cost-effective, representation in IP disputes across the country. We represent clients in patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret/trade dress, false advertising, Lanham Act, rights of publicity, and antitrust, breach of contract, and business tort claims that are often part of such disputes. Our partners are admitted to practice in most major metropolitan areas. Our litigators have served on nationwide panels such as the AIPLA Pattern Jury Instruction Committee and The Sedona Conference addressing the areas of antitrust law, complex litigation and intellectual property rights. What sets our litigators apart is their effective, creative problem-solving skills, and their preparedness to take any case to trial when necessary.
