IP Litigation

Overview

In this highly competitive economy of the information age, successful businesses must leverage and protect their intellectual property in order to maintain a competitive advantage.  A vigorous enforcement and defense of IP rights is now crucial to any successful business.

Our experienced team of IP litigators represents clients in matters involving patents, trademarks, copyrights, unfair competition and other related matters (see “Our Experience”). Our highly reputable attorneys are also invited to speak to other groups of lawyers about IP matters, and are periodically quoted in the legal trade press. One also lectures at a Boston law school and an international business school, having served in the technology licensing office of a prominent university.

Collectively, we have appeared in many venues across the country, including California, Massachusetts, New York, Texas and Virginia, and we have argued appeals at the Federal Circuit, as well as other U.S. Circuit Courts of Appeal.

We have also appeared before numerous arbitration panels, mediators and administrative agencies, including the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and the International Trade Commission.

Our trial advocates also know how to develop creative business solutions to avoid protracted litigation, crafting licensing arrangements and other creative agreements that can serve the interests of both sides in order to settle cases quickly and affordably whenever possible.

When a client does decide that trial is necessary to achieve their objectives, we prepare a case to go all the way, knowing what is necessary to win at trial, or to defend or overturn a verdict on appeal.
