We protect our clients’ interests in patent, copyright, trademark, false advertising and trade secret litigation. Our clients span a broad range of industries, with special strength in communications, media, technology, e-business, digital media and life sciences. Our complementary, broad-based intellectual property procurement and counseling practices enhance our litigation capabilities.
Our litigators have been at the forefront in applying traditional intellectual property principles to new media and technologies. Developing ways to apply existing law to new technologies and new uses for traditional intellectual property assets is a hallmark of our creative approach.
Our offices in the technology corridors of the Bay Area, Seattle and D.C./Northern Virginia and in the media centers of New York and Los Angeles give us a broad platform for litigation across the country and in many fields. Although we staff each project as leanly as possible, we have the depth to litigate very large cases on the accelerated schedules that intellectual property conflicts often require in every forum, including the Supreme Court.
Intellectual property litigation can affect many aspects of business operations, and we recognize that many of our clients are both owners and users of intellectual property assets. Knowing that positions taken in one case may have ramifications for other parts of a client’s business, we work closely with in-house counsel at all stages of litigation. We pride ourselves on finding creative solutions to avoid the time and expense of litigation when negotiating a resolution is possible and does not compromise our clients’ goals.
