Intellectual Property Litigation

One reason we focus on intellectual property is because of its importance to the modern technology economy.  Intangible assets now make up a significant portion of a company’s value, with estimates that intangible assets account for upwards of 80% of the value of S&P 500 companies.

The intellectual property laws protect those valuable ideas.  But too often, companies do not respect the intellectual property rights of others and are unwilling to pay for ideas when they get caught.  They expect the inventor to walk away because of the financial cost to prosecute the case.  On the other side, a company may be wrongly accused of taking another’s idea.  The lever of litigation may be used to attempt to obtain an unwarranted settlement.

We can help.

Our lawyers have the unique combination of courtroom skills and technical depth needed to effectively present a complicated intellectual property case to a jury.  Our team includes attorneys with backgrounds in electrical engineering and computer science and a registered patent attorney.  It includes former federal district court and appellate court law clerks.  Most importantly, we can effectively try a case and defend the verdict on appeal.
