Intellectual Property Disputes
Graydon litigators have a wide range of experience handling and resolving intellectual property (IP) disputes at all levels. For companies managing extensive IP portfolios to start-ups looking to launch their brands, IP is a valuable asset that can require quick enforcement action or defense. We have the depth of experience, breadth of knowledge, and inventive problem-solving skills to do just that.
Our litigators handle disputes related to trademarks, copyrights, patents, trade secrets, and domain names, as well as an organization’s proprietary information and resources. While we work to resolve disputes as efficiently and effectively as possible, we have the expertise to navigate technical procedures in federal and state court and to implement a thoughtful litigation strategy to maximize efficiency and strength.
We routinely handle copyright and trademark infringement actions and non-compete and trade secret claims. We also represent clients in alternative forums, such as the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s Trademark Trial & Appeal Board, for challenging trademark registrations and applications, and the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution procedure, for seeking transfer or cancellation of a cybersquatting domain name.
Our litigators have obtained successful outcomes for our clients in all of these forums. We have the experience and resources to best position a matter for resolution and to creatively negotiate favorable and practical outcomes for clients. We also offer innovative and competitive alternative fee arrangements where appropriate, and we work with our clients from the outset to develop comprehensive budgets and strategies to minimize business disruption.
