IP Litigation

In this highly competitive economy, successful businesses must carefully navigate the intellectual property landscape in order to maintain their competitive advantage.  Enforcing IP rights is crucial to any successful business.  Likewise, defending against claims relating to the IP rights of others is equally important to successfully competing in the marketplace.  Goulston & Storrs has a broad range of litigation experience and a proven track record of success across all areas of IP, including patents, design patents, trade secrets, trademarks, trade dress, copyrights, false advertising and unfair competition.

While our IP Litigation practice strives to resolve IP disputes without the need for litigation, we aggressively assert and defend our clients’ rights when necessary.  We have substantial expertise in venues throughout the country, including the Eastern District of Texas, Eastern District of Virginia, Central and Northern Districts of California, District of Massachusetts, the Southern District of New York, and the District of Delaware, as well as appellate courts, including the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.  Our litigators also appear before various mediators and arbitration panels, including in proceedings under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy, as well as administrative agencies, including the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and the International Trade Commission.
