Intellectual Property Litigation
Intellectual Property disputes require not only litigation expertise, but intricate knowledge of the complex technology surrounding the issues. At Carr & Ferrell, many of our attorneys hold advanced degrees in biotechnology, physics, pharmacology, chemistry, software and engineering. The technical background of our patent lawyers, coupled with our seasoned trial lawyers, enable us to address every aspect of our clients’ dispute resolution needs. Our experienced trial attorneys have successfully tried numerous cases in federal and state courts in California and throughout the country.
The depth of our litigation experience ranges from complex actions on behalf of multinational companies where achieving a successful resolution was critical to our clients’ businesses, to representing emerging companies and entrepreneurs in a variety of disputes. We represent clients from many high tech industries, including, manufacturing, mobile, software and biotechnology. The intellectual property matters that we litigate include:
- Unfair Competition
- Trade dress
- Trade Secrets
- Other intellectual property matters
In preparing for a case, we focus on what matters—the objectives of our clients. To achieve those goals, we develop and execute a strategy specifically tailored to each client. We frequently achieve our clients’ objectives through settlement, alternative dispute resolution and tactical summary judgment practice.
We also represent clients in patent review proceedings created by the America Invents Act before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. It is critical that the inter partes review and business method patent reviews authorized by the AIA be handled by attorneys such as ours, who are scientific and technical experts, as well as experienced litigators.
