Intellectual Property/Trade Secrets Litigation

We represent clients in both the prosecution and defense of intellectual property litigation, including false advertising, misappropriation and protection of confidential information and trade secrets. We also represent clients in patent infringement and invalidity cases in conjunction with intellectual property specialists. Intellectual property litigation often involves highly technical and complex issues that must be conveyed in plain language, whether to a court, an arbitration panel, or a jury. We have the ability to do this at each stage of the process. While intellectual property cases are often resolved short of a jury trial, if the matter proceeds to a trial or arbitration, we are uniquely qualified to zealously represent our clients as trial lawyers with extensive courtroom experience.

Representative Matters:

  • Represented a telecommunications company in a patent infringement suit involving complex technology, alleged system wide infringement claims, and substantial damage claims; the case was successfully resolved when the Court granted a pretrial motion, resulting in the dismissal of all infringement claims on the eve of trial.
  • As co-counsel, represented the inventor of a method of trimming sprayed on truck bed liners in a suit against 15 defendants.  Settlements were reached with all defendants resulting in a favorable outcome for our client.
  • Represented the inventor of a method of manufacturing liquid crystal displays suitable for use in large screen televisions.  Suit was brought against a manufacturer of LCD televisions and a component manufacturer, and was successfully resolved on the eve of trial.
  • In federal court, represented private equity firm holding majority ownership interest in oilfield services company in defense of trade secret misappropriation claims brought by supplier of downhole gas separators in connection with firm’s sale of company to third-party, which was sued for misappropriation, patent infringement, and fraud.

Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.
