Litigation

Our Capabilities
Over the past 30 years, we have been a leader in intellectual property litigation serving as lead counsel in matters in multiple jurisdictions. Our litigation team also has significant experience in handling commercial litigation and employment matters for clients ranging from large, global corporations to middle market companies. We have handled hundreds of contested matters throughout the country, including scores of complex trials in federal and state courts. Our attorneys have also handled numerous matters before the International Trade Commission and the Court of Appeals for Federal Circuit.

In addition to serving as lead counsel, our patent litigators are frequently called upon to serve as co-counsel complex in intellectual property litigation matters in the United States and abroad. Leading national and global firms rely on the breadth and depth of our technical knowledge to develop key aspects of challenging cases.

Track Record of Results
While no law firm can deliver a victory in every case, we achieved favorable results in the substantial majority of matters that we handled, frequently prevailing where the opposing party is represented by a larger firm at fees two to three times greater than ours. Our no-nonsense, problem-solving approach to litigation yields excellent results for clients without extravagant expenditures of resources.

A Fresh Approach
We believe our success stems from tightly aligning our work to our client’s interest of minimizing cost, expediting resolution and achieving a favorable but practical solution. We focus tenaciously on the core elements of the case that will lead to victory, avoiding expensive and time-consuming gamesmanship. When we have a matter that absolutely necessitates application of more resources, we work with our client to hand–pick the best possible co–counsel to provide that additional support. We also strive to keep clients continuously informed as to costs, strategies and risks.

Use of Technology
We use technology aggressively where it will reduce costs or improve results. For example, we have deployed Summation software to catalogue our discovery and Trial Director software to manage our trial needs. These innovative software applications yield cost-savings to the client during all phases of litigation.
