The key to any successful IP trial is preparation. Although grand strategies are important, more often the careful attention to detail, thorough preparation for trial, and carefully written briefs are keys to a successful outcome. From assembling the most appropriate team to handle the case, to collecting, producing and reviewing voluminous documents, to utilizing mock trials and preparing witnesses, the firm’s meticulous attention to detail is the key to our continued litigation success.
We believe that IP litigation must be approached aggressively, but in a controlled manner that is calculated to produce the maximum impact at each stage of the case. To achieve that, the full resources of our firm, both technical and legal, are available and committed to analyzing each case at the outset and working with our clients to decide the best approach to achieve their business objectives. From that point on, we consult with our clients regularly to review and evaluate the case plan, the litigation costs and the options available to achieve their objectives. At all times, we remain committed to our clients' goals, to being efficient and cost-effective, and to being flexible and responsive.
