Patent Litigation and Enforcement
Our litigation practice comprises all phases of litigation including counseling, discovery, Markman hearings, pretrial proceedings, mediation, trial and appeals before the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. We recognize that the only reason for protecting and enforcing IP is to advance the company’s business interests and increase shareholder value. We begin with an evaluation of all available options prior to the initiation of litigation to ensure the strategy to be implemented meets the company’s business objectives, and protects the company’s substantive rights. We strategically focus our efforts to bring about a successful resolution to the dispute. Sometimes, a negotiated settlement is better than trial. We will coordinate and direct litigation among multiple jurisdictions, both foreign and domestic, working closely with foreign associates and attorneys in local jurisdictions.
