At the outset of any dispute, we strive to thoroughly understand the objectives of our clients. From there, we develop a comprehensive strategy to best meet the client’s objectives in the most cost-effective manner possible. Often times our cost to handle litigation matters is half what larger firms charge, due to our low cost structure and litigation strategies that keenly focus on the elements of a case that are important to our clients and not on irrelevant ancillary details.
Our strategies are always focused on resolving matters prior to litigation, however, when litigation is unavoidable, we have the experience and expertise to handle all aspects of your case, from initial claims investigation, document collection, pleadings, discovery, expert witnesses, mediation, arbitration, trial, and appeals.
What happens if you receive a cease and desist letter accusing you of infringing someone’s intellectual property (IP) rights – typically a patent, trademark or copyright? Or worse, yet, what do you do if you are served with a summons and complaint, notifying you that your company has been sued for IP infringement?
Your first instinct may be to go to your in-house counsel or your trusted outside attorney. And this is a good first step. But it should not be your last step...
