IP-Related Litigation

Because litigation is expensive and time-consuming, sometimes negotiation, settlements and licensing options make more “business” sense when protecting your IP.  But make no mistake, if a lawsuit is necessary, we will be more than ready to represent your interests whether it  be in federal or state courts or before the administrative boards at the U.S. Patent Office.  Our seasoned litigators, backed by our firm’s ability to understand even the most sophisticated technologies make us the perfect litigation partner.

When someone infringes your intellectual property rights, Sand & Sebolt will be the aggressive, experienced partner you need to get them to stop. Conversely, if you are accused of infringing someone else’s  intellectual property, we will make sure you are prepared to defend yourself.  Some of the major kinds of IP litigation we can pursue for you include:

Patent Litigation

Our patent attorneys have a wide range of technical expertise and insights into the inner workings of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.  This unique perspective provides a unique advantage in deciphering  even the most complex patent infringement lawsuits.  We have the ability to litigate patent infringement cases in court both domestically and internationally.   We can provide you with a full range of litigation representation including infringement opinions, injunctions and  restraining orders.  From pre-trial hearings to summary judgments, from trial through appeal, our litigation team will be there for you when you need us most.

Trademark Litigation

We will also represent you in both common law and Lanham Act trademark and service mark infringement lawsuits; trade dress disputes; trade secret lawsuits;  unfair competition and false advertising claims, in both state and federal court. In addition, we will represent you before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board and provide representation in U.S. Customs counterfeiting cases, and other trade practice-related cases.

Copyright Litigation

Whether you are the plaintiff or defendant, Sand & Sebolt has a deep understanding of the fine points of copyright law.  We’ll work with you to develop a copyright protection strategy that leverages the inherent strengths of your case and puts you in the best position to win in court should your copyrights be threatened or questioned and the need for litigation arise.
