Litigation and Dispute Resolution

BETTER RESOLUTIONS Occur with the full picture

Protecting intellectual property and proprietary information is paramount to every business. We understand what is at stake when your IP and brand are threatened. When put in jeopardy, we enforce your rights and defend your most valuable assets through all means necessary, whether through arbitration, taking matters to trial or other strategies that achieve the desired results.

Before pursuing a specific dispute resolution strategy, we start by understanding the complex issues at play and assessing how they fit within your larger business needs, interests and risk profile. We provide you an in-depth analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of your claim and then work with you to adopt the right approach that effectively and efficiently advances and protects your interests.

We have extensive experience across several types of matters that often involve IP infringement, including:

  • Trademark (Domestic and Foreign)
  • Trade dress
  • Trade secrets
  • Copyright
  • Unfair competition
  • Licensing deals
  • False advertising
  • False online posting and reviews
  • Confidentiality and non-compete agreements
  • Employee and strategic partner terminations

The venue where a dispute is addressed is important. We have experience prosecuting, defending and trying IP claims in federal and state courts as well as before arbitration panels and various foreign jurisdictions through our global legal network, Law Firm Alliance (LFA).
