Litigation

Our Experience

We are experienced and effective intellectual property litigators. Our attorneys have litigated patents involving a broad range of technology areas, including:

  • Telecommunications
  • Electronics and Electrical Engineering
  • Software and E-Commerce
  • Business methods
  • Medical Devices and Procedures
  • Semiconductor Manufacturing
  • Energy/Oil & Gas
  • Mechanical Devices
  • Polymer Manufacturing
  • Chemical products and processes

We also represent clients in disputes involving trademarks, trade secrets and unfair competition, Internet domain name disputes, and copyrights

We litigate in courts all over the United States, including the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, representing both plaintiffs and defendants. We work both on an hourly basis, and in appropriate circumstances, on a contingent fee* basis.

Our Approach to Litigation

At the beginning of each matter, our attorneys work closely with the client to help identify and articulate its business objectives for the matter. At the same time, our attorneys determine which legal and factual issues will be critical to achieving these objectives, and which are likely to consume time and resources but not contribute to a successful outcome. We then develop an action plan for the case, outlining the steps that must be taken to accomplish the client’s objectives and identifying the resources that will be required to successfully accomplish each step. From that plan, a budget is established and agreed upon.

All phases of the case, from fact discovery to trial, are driven by this focus on the outcome determinative issues and the client’s business objectives. Not only does this approach save time and money, it also streamlines the case for trial. And while the majority of intellectual property cases are resolved without going to trial, our attorneys begin preparing our clients’ cases for trial from the day we are hired.
