Intellectual Property Litigation

Our Intellectual Property litigators have extensive experience handling trademark, copyright, patent, and trade-secret disputes. We assist our clients in protecting their intellectual property by prosecuting infringement claims when their rights are infringed and by defending claims when they are challenged. When possible, we work with clients to develop alternative strategies to litigation, including alternative dispute resolution, structuring strategic and beneficial settlements, and engaging in administrative proceedings such as the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board and arbitration forums that decide domain-name disputes under the Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP).
