Our clientele reflects the depth of the firm’s practice, and includes institutions and individuals ranging from record companies to apparel manufacturers. Regardless of the nature of our client, our emphasis remains the same – protecting the valuable assets that embody intellectual property in all its forms. We attempt to shelter our clients from expensive litigation through early mediation and neutral evaluation.
Where litigation is unavoidable, we tackle the process with transparency concerning cost and risk. We provide clients with budgeting, forecasting, and evaluations identifying the potential cost of litigation balanced against the risks as well as the potential upside for a client. We ensure that our clients are fully informed of all aspects of a litigation, and with our counsel, are able to make sound business decisions to protect their assets.
