Technology Disputes

Our lawyers provide strategic counsel on how to prevent and avoid costly technology disputes to clients in virtually every industry sector. Our work is consistently viewed as cutting-edge, often setting groundbreaking precedents in information technology case law. We are ready to provide clients with a combination of skilled analysis and decisive action should a controversy arise. Our experience in disputes and complex litigation, combined with our exclusive focus on technology markets, provides us with an edge in bringing technology disputes to a successful and cost-efficient resolution.

When a situation is heading toward protest or litigation, we help clients evaluate the circumstances and analyze all possible courses of action. In an expedited manner, we identify the relevant facts and evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of each party’s position. This process allows all parties to better assess the merits of the dispute and structure an early resolution that is appropriate to the circumstances.

When matters evolve into litigation, we are strong advocates for our clients. We litigate complex intellectual property, software license, systems development, software development, trade secret and Internet disputes raising cutting-edge legal issues in state and federal courts throughout the United States. We prosecute and defend claims of trademark, trade dress and trade name infringement. In addition, we prosecute and defend claims of copyright infringement, and have extensive experience in license disputes seeking remedies in law and equity. Our lawyers successfully litigate claims related to trade secrets, unfair competition, employment and ownership of intellectual property, and enforcement of noncompetition and non-disclosure agreements. We represent numerous clients involved in trade secret misappropriation disputes on the employer and employee sides of these matters.

Experienced in a variety of alternative dispute resolution forums, we serve as arbitrators, neutral mediators and advocates in arbitration and mediation proceedings. We have successfully handled an extensive number of arbitrations in the information technology field, and work with the parties to a dispute to gain a broad understanding of the disagreement and seek creative resolutions of the parties’ differences.
