Intellectual Property Litigation

Businesses invest substantial time and money developing their own unique intellectual property (IP), including trademarks, service marks, copyrights, and trade secrets.  Protecting those acquired rights requires constant vigilance by the owner against infringers and violators, which often times requires immediate expertise on an expedited or emergency basis.

Our Firm is experienced in assisting clients to both prosecute and defend IP claims.  Whether it is the immediate preparation of a complaint and motion for temporary restraining order (TRO) or the defense and opposition of one, we pride ourselves on the ability to be nimble and meet the urgent needs of our clients.

Intellectual property litigation often also involves strategic business considerations, and our Firm engages its clients to be a part of the global objective.  From the initiation of a case, to discovery strategy, motion practice, and through trial and appeal, we deliver effective and efficient representation.
