Disputes involving intellectual property and technology are an unfortunate reality in today’s competitive marketplace. Our lawyers have the experience to quickly identify potential disputes and efficiently resolve those disputes before they end up in court. When litigation is necessary, we can make even the most complex information coherent and compelling to judges and juries to help secure favorable outcomes for our clients.
IP and technology are critical to the success of most businesses, so when disputes arise, the stakes are high. Losing an intellectual property or technology lawsuit can irreparably damage a company's competitive position and even lead to its demise. Because of the importance and complexity of the issues, it’s important to have lawyers who are well-versed in intellectual property and technology. We understand technology and have extensive experience that is both broad and deep. Our attorneys litigate disputes involving all types of intellectual property and technology, including trade secrets, copyrights, trademarks, patents, licensing agreements, domain names, computer and software performance, the Internet, e-commerce, unfair competition and other complex matters.
Litigation is not always consistent with a client’s business objectives. For that reason, we strive to identify and resolve potential disputes before they end up in court. If litigation is unavoidable, we help manage risks and costs by working closely with our clients on early strategy development and budgeting. Our goal is to help clients aggressively prosecute and defend their intellectual property rights to retain their competitive advantage in the marketplace.
