What should I know about intellectual property litigation?

For the majority of legal issues, people want to resolve the problem without actually entering a courtroom. Most of the time, these situations can be handled through alternative dispute resolution but sometimes, things go awry and more complex means must be taken. Many attorneys consider litigation to be worst case scenario and this option is only used if mediation, arbitration, or collaborative methods don’t work. Perhaps you have sent cease and desist letters that were simply ignored or you had the court issue a writ of preliminary injunction to stop the party from using your intellectual property that was unsuccessful.

Our firm understands how important protecting your intellectual property is because it is likely something you have spent years working on. When your intellectual property has been infringed upon, you should have an experienced intellectual property attorney who can fight for your rights. There are many factors that need to be taken into consideration when planning to pursue a litigated matter. It is important that you go in fully prepared and are financially able to go through the lawsuit. You will also have to decide if you are going to try to collect financial damages or if your primary goal is just to stop the other party from using your intellectual property without your consent. Matters can become even more complex and complicated if the party you are bringing a lawsuit against is a party that you have a business relationship with.

If you are having an issue with another party improperly using your intellectual property, it is important that you consult with an experienced attorney who has handled these situations many times in the past.
