To be effective, an intellectual property strategy must not only take into consideration the acquisition of IP rights but also, where appropriate, the enforcement of those rights against competitors. Similarly, when a business finds itself on the receiving end of a lawsuit or threatened lawsuit, it needs to call upon the necessary resources to assess its legal position and mount a robust response.
Regardless of whether you are a plaintiff or a defendant, our litigators and agents have the technical and courtroom experience that you need in order to obtain a successful outcome.
