Intellectual Property Litigation

A company’s most valuable assets are it intellectual property – its trade secrets, trade marks, copyrights, customer lists and patents.  We have experience protecting this property in a wide variety of matters.  In one case, when we were retained three months before trial, and one month before the close of discovery, we conducted a thorough investigation, won an order finding waiver of the attorney client privilege, deposed all of the principal witnesses, and settled the case with no money changing hands and a covenant never to sue defendants again.  We also represented a former CEO in an action against the Virgin Group for misappropriation of a novel business idea, which case was widely reported in the press.
