Intellectual Property Litigation

Intellectual property disputes usually begin—and sometimes end—with a “cease and desist” letter. Yet every action taken to enforce or defend, intellectual property claims requires a deep understanding of the often-complex legal issues. We balance a thoughtful, common-sense approach with aggressive representation, and have achieved excellent results for a broad range of clients.
