Patent Preparation and Prosecution
Validity and Infringement Investigations and Opinions
Sound legal advice and representation during the events and negotiations that precede patent litigation can greatly affect the outcome. In many cases, litigation can be avoided altogether in the pre-litigation phase of a dispute, if an adversary is guided to make a realistic assessment of the case-specific risks, costs, and potential benefits. On the other hand, some admissions that an inexperienced attorney might make during a pre-litigation "letter war" can compromise success later in court. We carefully represent and advise our clients through this critical early phase of a patent dispute - the phase when wise decisions and careful communications can often achieve a positive result at a far lower cost than litigation - and we often carefully lead our client's adversaries to doubt their prospects in future litigation.
